    Just one of those quirky observations, but...The NPUAP or National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel who now recommends the use of Pressure Injuries rather than Pressure Sores, Pressure Ulcers, Decubitus Ulcers or Bed Sores, for now, maintains the name of National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel.

    That aside, the website looks like a good resource.,

    Yes, everyone has been joking about that for some time...The European and the Pan Pacific Pressure Ulcer Advisory Councils made this change too, and they haven't changed their name either.

    Oh good. I was hoping you weren't thinking I was being snarky.
