About Us

As your peak body for wound care and management, it’s our vision to ensure the Australian community receives quality wound prevention and care. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to lead the way in wound care and prevention through advocacy, knowledge, innovation and collaboration.

Wounds Australia have five key principles that we are guided by whilst working towards our vision:

  • Our actions are informed by evidence
  • We collaborate with patients, carers, families, health professionals, governments and industry
  • We acknowledge the social determinants of health
  • We are continuously improving
  • We operate within our code of conduct and in an ethical manner.

Our Mission:

We are focused on reducing the harm caused by wounds through advocacy, knowledge sharing and establishment of best practice.

Our Members

Our members are drawn from the disciplines of nursing, medicine, pharmacy, podiatry, aged care and the sciences. As part of the Wounds Australia membership we offer a range of benefits to support our members in their professional development and enhance their understanding of wound care. This is done by providing access to evidence-based resources (including Standards & Guidelines), running educational events across Australia, offering over $50,000 in scholarships and grants and raising awareness of chronic wounds through our annual Wound Awareness Week. We also run a biennial National Wound Conference that gives health care professionals the chance to listen to wound experts from all over the world and engage with some of the greatest minds in the industry.
