The 2014 Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Ulcers: Clinical Practice Guideline is the result of a collaborative effort between three international organisations:

The guideline was developed using a rigorous scientific methodology to appraise available research and make 575 evidence-based recommendations. In this second edition, a consensus voting process (GRADE) was used to assign strengths to each recommendation. These indicate the extent to which one can be confident that adherence to a recommendation will do more good than harm, and are indented to assist the health professional to prioritise interventions.
