WOUND AWARENESS MATTERS


Wound Awareness Week is back this year and will be taking place from 15th – 21st July, 2019. With the theme “Let’s Talk About Wounds”, our goal is to get people talking about the rising issue of wounds. Chronic wounds affect over half a million Australians every day and are much more common than people realise. Many individuals don’t know the wound warning signs, therefore suffer for longer than necessary as they don’t know their wound can be treated.

The aim of Wound Awareness Week is to reach out to all, to help us spread awareness of what wounds are, who’s at risk and what someone should do if they have a wound that won’t heal.
