The New Zealand Pressure Injury Advisory Group (NZPIAG) was established in 2006 under the auspices of the NZWCS, as an advisory group to provide expert advice on pressure injuries and undertake projects in relation to the prevention and management of pressure injuries. Collaboration with the Pan Pacific Pressure Injury Alliance (PPPIA) resulted in the publication of the Pan-Pacific Clinical Practice Guidelines for Prevention and Management of Pressure Injury in August 2011. The PPPIA was then invited in 2012 to review the North American (NPUAP) and European (EWMA) pressure ulcer guidelines. This work cumulated in 2014 with the publication of the International Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) for the Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Ulcers. It was agreed that the term pressure ulcer stands for pressure injury.
There are 8 members of the PIAG group
2019 Clinical Guidelines
The third edition of the guideline was released in November 2019. The goal of this international collaboration was to develop evidence-based recommendations for the prevention and treatment of pressure injuries that could be used by health professionals throughout the world. An explicit scientific methodology has been used to identify and critically appraise all available research.
