Oxford Pressure Injury Project – PIPOx

Benchmarking home-dwelling patients using a case study approach

SUMMARY

•Pressure Injuries (PI’s) manifest frequently as a chronic condition of older people, many of whom choose to remain at home  [1]

•High quality community based research is needed to address the predicted rise in pressure injuries [2]

•A robust community baseline of PI’s, to evaluate and compare the effectiveness of PI treatments and prevention strategies, remains elusive
 
•PIPOx, a collaborative program, aims to benchmark home-dwelling pressure injury patients using a case study approach
 

Previous studies have concentrated on large geographic regions (population 240,000-750,000); arguably, only statistically useful if the data is verifiable, reproducible and if further studies are equally large scale.    Information from smaller, diverse communities within these large regions is often blurred or lost.  A detailed analysis of a smaller, established region provides rich information allowing it to become its own case control for future comparative research.  The PIPOx project draws on such a region, defined by a postal district, as a case study to provide a better understanding of PI’s in community dwelling patients, and derive a local baseline for future studies.
