The US Department of Veterans Affairs has developed and released a free and innovative mobile app for veterans and caregivers working to prevent and treat pressure injuries. The VA Pressure Ulcer Resource app (VA PUR) helps veterans and their caregivers learn about pressure injuries and manage their care and prevention. The app is a leader in mobile patient education and helps users create journal entries, pull together lists of questions for their providers, and set up regular reminders to move, eat, and take medications. Educational topics and video tutorials cover exercise, nutrition, coping with stress, and managing pain. The VA PUR also includes information about how to get immediate help and locate nearby medical facilities. The VA PUR is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
