Abstract

Effective compression bandaging is critical for leg ulcer care. The bandaging technique of 18 nurses was assessed using a pressure monitor and the assessment repeated after training with feedback from the monitor. The use of a bandage marked with a tension indicator resulted in a small, insignificant improvement in bandaging technique. The combination of training and feedback significantly improved the nurses' bandaging technique. This improvement was sustained on retesting two weeks later.
