Publications

Having access to evidence-based clinical research ensures that our members can deliver quality wound care to the Australian community. It’s for this reason that we have made our standards and guidelines free to download on our website to all our users. Our publications cover a variety of different wounds and are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure the information you are receiving is always up-to-date. We’ve also made hard copies of our publications available to purchase at the Online Store (our members receive a heavily discounted rate).

If this sounds like something you would benefit from then you can find out more about each of our publications below. If you would like permission to reproduce information in the Wounds Australia publications then please fill out our form here .
