2019 World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day
Share |

The National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel (NPIAP) is proud to announce that 2019 World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day is to be celebrated on Thursday, November 21, 2019.

The objective of World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day is to increase awareness about pressure injury prevention and to educate the public on this topic. NPIAP has developed an extensive media materials package, appropriate for all healthcare settings and organizations, which is available below.


Help get pressure injury day recognized in your state
