1). The study aimed to determine whether using structured, systematic pressure risk assessment tools reduces the incidence of pressure ulcers in any health care setting. Two review authors assessed the eligibility of each study based on the inclusion criteria. The original review found no studies that would meet the inclusion criteria and that there was no statistically significant difference among groups in terms of pressure ulcer incidence. Further evaluation and studies need to be conducted regarding the effectiveness of risk assessment tools. Randomized controlled trial was utilized as the design of the study. Methods include were the Braden pressure ulcer risk assessment tool and training, unstructured risk assessment and training, and unstructured risk assessment alone. Population included 256 people randomised by ward into three groups.

Limitations of the study include methodological limitations that prevent firm conclusions and unavailability of high quality RCT evidence. Jaul, E. (2010).
