INQRI Grantees' Work Preventing Pressure Ulcers Recognized Nationwide

The INQRI program is proud to present news coverage detailing the superb work of one of our grantee teams. An interdisciplinary team led by Tracey Yap, Ph.D., a nurse researcher and Jay Kim, Ph.D., an engineer, at the University of Cincinnati has developed a sustainable, system-wide program for pressure ulcer prevention that enhances mobility of long-term care residents. This program entails playing music over a loudspeaker every two hours with the music prompting caregivers to stop when the music starts and make sure residents are repositioned.
