Preventing wound occurrence and improving the quality of wound treatment are primary goals of Wounds Australia. In doing so we support best practice in wound management that is guided by evidence. This evidence is gained through commitment to research that examines not only the process of wound development, repair and regeneration, but the effect of wounds on the society in general.

We have demonstrated our commitment to wound research in Australia by:

  • Establishing the Research Foundation in September 2004. The aim of the Foundation is to promote further research on wounds within Australia and to provide funding to support such research through a grant. You can find out more about our research grant here.
  • Developing publications based on research that promote best clinical practice. These include guidelines such as the Standards for Wound Management, Pan Pacific Clinical Practice Guideline for the Prevention and Management of Pressure Injury, the Australian and New Zealand Clinical Practice Guideline for the Prevention & Management of Venous Leg Ulcers and many more.

Our publications are free for members to download on our website - to find out more Click Here
