E A Ayello et al. Clin Geriatr Med. .

Abstract

The importance of education in preventing and treating patients with pressure ulcers is evident by the inclusion of recommendations for educational objectives in the clinical guidelines by the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research. Both caregiver and client should be assessed for knowledge of pressure ulcers. Physical changes in vision, hearing, and cognition that might affect educating older clients are described. Strategies suitable for teaching older clients about the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers are given.
