While participating in the training, identify ways you can use newly acquired knowledge, strategies, and skills to enhance patient outcomes and your own professional development.

Purpose of Activity

To present a study that investigated sacrococcygeal skeletal structure as a possible nonmodifiable intrinsic risk factor for pressure injury and identify possible issues caused by its morphology.

Learning Objectives

After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to:

  1. Recognize the background information the authors considered when planning and conducting their study of sacrococcygeal skeletal structure as a possible pressure injury risk factor.
  2. Identify the characteristics of the two groups of study participants.
  3. Choose the results of the study clinicians may consider when implementing evidence-based practice.
