It was designed for Australian audiences to help them classify pressure injuries using the International NPUAP/EPUAP Pressure Ulcer Classification System (2009,2014) as published in The International Guideline (2019). If you are from outside Australia, please check with the peak body for wound management in your country to see if this classification system is applicable where you live.
