Main purpose/objective of the association:
The reasons and aims of the founding of the Association were that of increasing problems for patients with chronic wounds. Also, the growing awareness of the value of a multidisciplinary approach
to the the problem called "the wound" – involving team work of physicians of different specialities, nurses
and other participants involved in the therapeutic process.
The second important issue is that of education – by means of professional meetings, printed material and in loco practice. The key message of all these activities is "basic knowledge for all", along with a standardization of basic procedures in clinical practice from prevention and diagnostics to treatment.
