Pressure injuries are wounds which occur on bony prominences, following prolonged hours of pressure or shear. Their incidence in community settings could be as high as 80%, but application of basic prevention knowledge can avert this trend. The objectives of the study were to determine the level of pressure injury knowledge after a training intervention, to determine the pressure injury prevention practice after the training intervention, and to examine the relationship between post training knowledge, and pressure injury prevention practice. This was a randomized controlled trial, which was conducted at multiple sites, that is, at Embu Level 5 Teaching and Referral Hospital, Kenya, and at patients’ homes.
