Coming in May 2018: Wound Management BPIP

HHQI will be releasing the Wound Management Best Practice Intervention Package (BPIP) in early May. The BPIP brings together evidence-based practices from leading expert organizations, such as Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN); National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP); International Skin Tear Advisory Panel (ISTAP); and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The utilization of an interdisciplinary approach to wound care to improve care and efficiencies is emphasized throughout the BPIP, and many tools for leadership, clinicians, and patients to support your agency's wound management program will be provided.
