Pressure ulcers are a complication caused by disease, care and treatment and can result in great suffering for the patient. Pressure ulcers can affect people both physically and psychosocially and is experienced, by most patients, as a serious and unnecessary complication of care. Today there are hundreds of identified risk factors for pressure ulcers described that can be divided into patient and care-related risk factors. A successful pressure ulcer prevention and treatment is to reduce or eliminate the underlying causes for the development of pressure ulcers, prevent deterioration and to treat existing ulcers. To prevent the occurrence of pressure ulcers and heal them, nurses’ knowledge and skills become important.

The analyze was conducted by Fribergs (2012) analysis regarding qualitative and quantitative research.

     

    Results: The result are presented under the four headings: Differences in nurses’ knowledge, Either you love pressure ulcers or you hate them, Lack of access to training, despite its positive impact, The attitude has a greater impact on the practice than knowledge.
