This work illustrates the implementation of a computerised guideline for the pressure ulcers prevention. In particular, we describe the site-specification of a guideline delivered by the Agency for Health Care Policy Research, its integration with the electronic patient record, and its introduction within the clinical routine. The system facilitates trained nurses in the patient management by producing daily work-plans, and novice nurses by running as an educational tool.
