The objective of the systematic review (SR) is to determine the ef­fectiveness of inpatient comprehensive pain management in patients with hard to heal ulcers. The protocol of SR is prepared accord­­ing to Prefer­red Report­­ing Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Protocols (PRISMA-P) statement. All experimental and observational analytical studies deal­­ing with adults with hard to heal ulcer and ef­fectiveness of inpatient comprehensive pain management will be considered for inclusion. A three-step strategy will be utilized in this review and 13 databased searched without language and date limitation. Analysis of title, abstracts and full texts, critical appraisal and data extraction will be car­ried out on selected studies us­­ing standardized instruments developed by Joan­na Briggs Institute. If pos­sible, statistical meta-analysis us­­ing software RevMan 5.0 will be performed.
