Interdisciplinary Mobility Team Approach to Reduction of Facility-Acquired Pressure Ulcers

This nurse-led interdisciplinary research team developed a sustainable, system-wide program for pressure ulcer prevention that enhances mobility of long-term care (LTC) residents. The primary goal, under nursing's leadership, was to reduce LTC facility-acquired pressure ulcer incidence by 50% using a cost-effective innovative program to increase resident active or passive movement. The team was led by Tracey Yap, PhD, a nurse researcher, and Jay Kim, PhD, an engineer.
