Pressure Injury Prevention Resources

Kia ora koutou,

The Pressure Injury team at ACC is excited to announce the release of the new ‘No Pressure’ Pressure Injury prevention resources, in both online and printed formats.

These new resources were largely developed out of conversations with the New Zealand Wound Care Society (NZWCS), who had a vision to create a nationally consistent set of prevention resources. We’d like to thank them for the time they have put into this process.

Following the initial development with NZWCS, the resources have been through a thorough review process, including feedback from DHBs, the Ministry of Health and HQSC, and importantly, from people at risk of pressure injuries. The feedback from all of these groups was hugely valuable in refining the resources and ensuring they would be well understood by the people who need the information the most.

The full set of resources are:

For the public:

  • Preventing pressure injuries leaflets –
    Printed - English, Hindi, Maori, Samoan, Simplified Chinese, Tongan
    Online - English, Arabic, Burmese, Hindi, Korean, Maori, Punjabi, Samoan, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Tagalog, Tokelauan, Tongan, Traditional Chinese, Tuvaluan

  • Preventing pressure injuries posters
    Printed and Online - Bed & Chair

For clinicians:

All printed & online

  • Preventing pressure injuries poster – health professional focus

  • Pressure injury classification chart

  • Guiding principles for pressure injury prevention and management in NZ (2017)

Each DHB will have the ability to order the printed resources online through the ACC ordering platform
It is also possible to access versions to print or that are intended to be viewed on a device at
If you have any questions about ordering the resources, or would like other digital formats, please email us at

Please feel free to share this information with the stakeholders you engage as part of your pressure injury programmes (for example district nursing, Allied Health, rehabilitation facilities, community providers).  They are also able to order the new resources.
