Standard Textile is supporting World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day, a global awareness event organized by the National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel (NPIAP). World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day was first observed in 2013.
“Pressure injuries are one of the most common conditions experienced by patients around the world. A pressure injury may cause a great deal of pain and suffering, and it often presents a difficult challenge for the patient, the caregiver, and the health system,” said Norman Frankel, Executive Vice President, Standard Textile. “Pressure injuries are preventable, and we all have a role in stopping them from occurring.”

The National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel (NPIAP) is an independent not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to the prevention and management of pressure injuries. The NPIAP serves as a resource to healthcare professionals, government, the public, and healthcare agencies. NPIAP’s 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.
Other professional organizations that have joined the NPIAP’s efforts include: the American Health Care Association, National Center for Assisted Living (Non-Collaborating Organization Council), Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, National Alliance of Wound Care & Ostomy, and Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society for North America.
