PIP during the COVID-19 crisis

The NPIAP is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects it is having on both healthcare providers and patients. We remain committed to our core mission to P ROVIDE INTERPROFESSIONAL LEADERSHIP TO IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES IN PRESSURE INJURY PREVENTION AND MANAGEMENT THROUGH EDUCATION, PUBLIC POLICY AND RESEARCH . We realize that both human and material resources are strained as we care for the ever-increasing number and complexity of patients with COVID-19.  In response to the many inquiries and expressions of concerns we have received, the NPIAP has compiled a list of COVID-19 Related Resources for Pressure Injury Prevention. We will continue to expand this list as needed. See below for an initial list of resources.



The National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel (NPIAP) is an independent not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to the prevention and management of pressure injuries. Formed in 1986, the NPIAP Board of Directors is composed of leading experts from different health care disciplines— all of whom share a commitment to the prevention and management of pressure injuries. The NPIAP serves as a resource to health care professionals, government, the public, and health care agencies; and welcomes and encourages the participation of those interested in pressure injury issues through utilization of NPIAP educational materials, participation at national conferences, and support of efforts in public policy, education and research.

The NPIAP, assisted by multiple corporations and organizations, has become an internationally recognized entity. The collaboration of professionals, corporations, and governmental agencies offers a unique model for addressing major health care issues. The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel and the Japanese Society of Pressure Ulcers have adapted the NPIAP model in establishing their organizations.
