Abstract

Background: Student nurses need to develop competency providing nursing care to patients at risk of developing a Stage I Pressure Ulcer in the clinical setting. This practicum developed an educational tool for The Bachelor of Science in Nursing students at The University of Ontario Institute of Technology for the risk management of Stage I Pressure Ulcers. Objectives: The objectives of this clinical project are: 1) To conduct a thorough literature review to critically appraise evidence-based information and clinical practice guidelines related to the risk management of Stage I Pressure Ulcers, 2) To conduct consultations with key stakeholders to determine relevant clinical skills and techniques used to implement risk management of Stage I Pressure Ulcers, and 3) To develop the appropriate educational resource tool based on learning needs identified during consultations for the risk management of Stage I Pressure Ulcers. Methodology: A literature review and consultations were used to determine the learning needs of the students within the program to determine relevant information to be included in the educational tool. The educational resource was used Knowles Adult Learning Theory as the theoretical framework underpinning the development of the project. Results: Findings demonstrated that the students experience difficulty with the ability to assess, interpret, and develop care plans based on The Braden Scale scores of their clinical assignments
