Gold STAMP Resources
The Gold STAMP Program has aggregated a number of resources and tools to help all providers across the continuum address the challenges of pressure ulcers. These resources and tools include an organizational self-assessment of the processes of care for pressure ulcers, a guidance document and tools for the assessment, management, and prevention of pressure ulcers, and education and information on the use of these resources and strategies to create cross-setting partnerships and to improve communication between settings about pressure ulcers.
The Gold STAMP Resource Guide presents the vision, goals and methodology of this initiative to reduce the incidence and prevalence of pressure ulcers across the health care continuum. It contains information gathered from research and practice and offers strategies and actions to improve assessment, care management and consumer health care outcomes.
We urge organizations to identify your champion(s) for healthy skin and to engage existing cross-setting partnerships or create new partnerships, internally and externally, to be proactive and collaborative in achieving and sustaining positive skin care outcomes.
The Action Plan template provides a structure organizations can use to outline intervention steps, improve systems, assign accountability for those actions, and establish milestones to help maintain progress on the path to quality improvement. The Action Plan can be used by single organizations and cross-setting teams consisting of organizations working on pressure ulcer improvement.
