Welcome to CPIAP!
The Pan-Canadian Interprofessional Approach to Address the Prevention and Management of Pressure Injuries
Pressure injuries are a growing concern in Canada. In order to address the national issue of pressure injuries in Canada, we are bringing together an interprofessional, nationwide panel. This pan-Canadian panel will be represented by a cross section of clinicians and researchers from different healthcare sectors from acute care to the community.
The mandate of CPIAP is to:
act as a unified voice in Canada
support the adaptation of International Pressure Injury Guidelines for Canada,
raise public awareness about pressure injury prevention and management,
advocate for practice change locally, provincially, and federally through policy change in order to improve patient care, and
enhance the scientific evidence that will support stronger evidence-based practice.
November 17, 2022 is Worldwide Pressure Injury Prevention Day!
