Pressure sore treatment: clinical guidelines

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Clinical guidelines, like any intervention, can and should be appraised systematically. Evaluation is essential since an intervention that appears as if it will improve care may not do so in practice. Furthermore, guidelines rely on a change in behaviour on the part of practitioners and failure to achieve this may undermine potential health gains. The key areas considered here are evaluation of guidelines themselves and assessment of their impact on care.
