AIUC understands the importance of sharing information and best practice. By producing one Position Document every year, AIUC aims to provide clear advice of the
clinical management of a specific topic area, drawing together the current literature presented by national and international experts on the subject, and highlighting
future questions for research and practice. On September 2009, the first position document titled “Compression therapy in the treatment of leg ulcers” has been released.
On September 2010 a position document titled “Pharmacological and Surgical therapy of venous ulcers” will be presented. AIUC Position Document is available on the
web portal in Italian and English.
Regional Divisions are responsible for disseminating training activities at local level and promote studies on Chronic Cutaneous Lesions. The regional coordinator
oversees and manages their activities and is appointed by the association’s members. The Regional Coordinator has a two year long mandate.
