Pressure injuries are common in the elderly and patients who reduced physical activities. Its complications significantly impact the health care system and social burden, even causing the death rate to be as high as 68%. This study aims to collect medical data regarding pressure injuries during hospitalization for developing the Pressure Injury Prediction and Education Model using a mobile application system. It can offer a prediction on the risk of pressure injury and be used as a teaching aid for pressure injury care, providing a personalized and evidence-based nursing information platform for patients, caregivers, and health professionals.


This study will conduct a randomized controlled trial among 160 primary caregivers of patients with pressure injuries. They will be randomly assigned to the control group or the experimental group. In the control group, patients are routinely cared for in the ward, and this group will have no intervention. Routine care includes face-to-face training and educational pamphlets by the ward nurse. The experimental group will be provided a pressure injury prediction of the patient and personalized care information of pressure injury by a smart care platform. The participants (primary caregivers) will fill out the questionnaires online at admission (baseline-T0)and before the patient is discharged(T1). The questionnaires will collect the following data, including demographic information(only T0), knowledge, self-efficacy, anxiety, depression of pressure injury care(T0&T1), and satisfaction of the smart care platform(only T1). The time to fill out the questionnaires will be about 10 minutes.
