dc.description.abstractPreventing wound care issues such as pressure injuries (PI) is a healthcare safety priority (Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, 2014). A major concern in Australia is that hospital-acquired pressure injury (HAPI) prevalence rates remain relatively unchanged over recent years, ranging between 9% and 18% (Mulligan, Scott and Prentice et al., 2011). PIs negatively impact on patients, nurses and healthcare organisations in terms of physical and emotional distress, increased workloads and economic burden, and reduced community confidence (Latimer, Chaboyer and Gillespie, 2014; Nguyen, Chaboyer and Whitty, 2015). Most clinicians agree that implementing international clinical practice guidelines (CPG) for pressure injury prevention (PIP) may help to reduce HAPI prevalence rates (Moore, Johansen and van Etten et al., 2015). However, many patients do not receive their planned PIP care (Vanderwee, Defloor and Beekman et al., 2011; Latimer, Gillespie and Chaboyer, 2015; Latimer, Chaboyer and Gillespie, 2016). Responding to this clinical practice gap requires innovation, with the area of patient participation warranting further consideration.
