Message from the Chair
Wounds Australia is committed to improving the prevention, treatment and healing of chronic wounds across Australia. We are the leading advocate and peak representative organisation for wounds in this country.
Wounds Australia has been responsible for increasing awareness and understanding of the hidden wound epidemic that is afflicting Australia through our advocacy agenda directly targeting politicians including Ministers.
The Wounds Australia 11 Point Plan has been well received by all political parties. There is an increased understanding of how our Plan will dramatically improve the health and aged care systems. The 11 Point Plan delivers solutions driven policies and programs that will reduce the incidence of chronic wounds and treatment costs. These solutions will also elevate the status, skills and support of wound care professionals.
Wounds Australia has been making headway but more still needs to be done – and we need your help!
Between now and Election Day on Saturday 21 May you can help ensure the agenda is set for the next Federal Government to deliver the policies and programs needed to deliver real, sustainable and impactful change, no matter who is elected.
That’s why we’ve built this Advocacy Kit.
It gives you the information you need to be a strong local advocate, including:
- facts on the impact of wounds in Australia
- getting help from your colleagues, families, friend and clients
- how to talk to your local politicians and candidates about wound issues.
Everything we’ve included on being an advocate is quick, simple and easy.
With just a small amount of time and effort from every member and supporter, we can all be part of driving the most important wound care reforms ever implemented in Australia.
