Standards for Wound Prevention and Management (Third Edition)

The Standards for Wound Prevention and Management presented in this revised third edition provide a framework for promoting best practice in wound prevention and management as they reflect current evidence. The Standards are a valuable tool for guiding clinical practice and the development of policies, procedures and education programs. The aim of the Standards is to facilitate quality care outcomes for individuals with wounds or at risk of wounding.

It is the ongoing vision of Wounds Australia that these Standards will continue to be adopted by health care professionals, health care workers, educators and service providers across Australia, and that the challenge associated with validating and embedding the Standards across all practice and educational settings be taken up enthusiastically.
