National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP)

The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and management of pressure ulcers. NPUAP offers resources, conferences, and CEU programs to health care professionals.

Formed in 1987, the NPUAP Board of Directors is composed of leading experts from different health care disciplines - all of whom share a commitment to the prevention and management of pressure ulcers. The NPUAP serves as a resource to health care professionals, government, the public, and health care agencies; and welcomes and encourages the participation of those interested in pressure ulcer issues through utilization of NPUAP educational materials, participation at national conferences, and support of efforts in public policy, education and research.

The NPUAP, assisted by multiple corporations and organizations, has become an internationally recognized entity. The 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 NPUAP model in establishing their organizations.
