The authors reflect on the Pan Pacific clinical practice guideline for the prevention and management of pressure injury (PI). PIs lead to a number of limitations and represent serious clinical and economic health challenges. They highlight that the guideline aims to assist multidisciplinary health providers to identify individuals who are at risk of PI; identify strategies to assess PIs and factors related to their risk; and prevent or delay complications associated with PIs.
