Development, implementation and evaluation of a pressure ulcer treatment protocol for patients suffering from spinal cord injury in a specialised Danish Healthcare setting.

The first part of the study is a systematic review: Epidemiological and etiological knowledge about pressure ulcers among the spinal cord injured population will form a very good fundament for development of a targeted treatment protocol for this specific population and a systematic review will be performed.

Secondly, a pressure ulcer treatment protocol (including local wound treatment and secondary prevention) will be developed in collaboration with clinical experts and patients in a Delphi Panel. The treatment protocol will be based on current knowledge / evidence and international guidelines.

The third part of the project will be implementation and evaluation of the treatment protocol based on developed indicators.

The aim of this study is to optimise pressure ulcer treatment to patients suffering from spinal cord injury.
