Global ISTAP Classification System Validation Project

Skin tears are common acute wounds with different levels of severity. An internationally accepted instrument to assess the severity of skin tears with established diagnostic accuracy, agreement, and reliability is needed to support clinical practice and research.

Currently, we are performing a two-phase international psychometric evaluation study of the International Skin Tear Advisory Panel (ISTAP) Classification System in 15 languages worldwide.

This survey is now closed.

We would like to thank those who participated in the first and second phases of this study. 

For more information you can reach us at Hanne.VanTiggelen@UGent.be or the number +32 (0) 9 332 83 86.

Many thanks for your efforts!

Sincerely,

Hanne Van Tiggelen
