Skin Tear/Pre-Tibial Injury Resources

Skin Tear/Pre-Tibial Injury Skin tears are traumatic wounds which result from friction and/or shear or blunt trauma, separating the epidermis from the dermis (partial thickness wound), or the epidermis and the dermis from the underlying structures (full thickness wound).

The following resources are intended for health care providers involved in skin and wound care, to use to educate themselves, their co-workers, and/or their patients. The guidelines, tools, algorithms, and patient enablers can also be taken, modified as necessary, and implemented in health care facilities within copyright restrictions (which are noted with specific tools where applicable) and with approval from your organization's senior managers.
