    To view this collection, please login or join Education and Evidence.

    This whiteboard video describes what the Braden Scale is and how it is calculated. It gives an overview of how the Braden scale can be used to as a patient assessment tool and how to assess a patient's risk of pressure ulcers, or pressure injuries, based upon six areas.

    Pressure injury prevention is a building block to patient care, the reduction of complications and supports cost reductions.

    The video reviews the six assessment areas of the Braden Scale:

    1. Sensory Perception
    2. Moisture
    3. Activity
    4. Mobility
    5. Nutrition
    6. Friction and Shear
