From: Hospital based care at home; study protocol for a mixed epidemiological and randomized controlled trial

Brief name: outpatient treatment of pressure ulcer from home by teleSCI
Why: to improve the outpatient follow-up in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) and pressure ulcer
What: outpatient pressure ulcer follow-up from the participant’s home, using videoconferencing as a tool to cooperate, compared to usual care.

The local caregivers will receive training via videoconferencing in how to treat and prevent pressure ulcer among the group of persons with spinal cord injury within the context of a clinical trial
How: using videoconferencing and remote control software to a laptop at the patient’s location
Where: from Haukeland University Hospital and Sunnaas Rehabilitation Hospital to the patient’s home
When/how much: the experimental intervention consists of pressure ulcer treatment guidance every second or third week until the pressure ulcer has healed, or a maximum of 52 weeks.
