New EWMA Document published

20 Apr

The impact of patient health and lifestyle factors on wound healing

You can now access a new EWMA Document that sets out to understand the prevalence of risk factors among those with chronic wounds, as well as how these factors influence wound healing.⁠

The document is divided into two parts: Part 1 covers stress, sleep, smoking, medication, illicit drug use and alcohol consumption, all commencing with an understanding of pathophysiology as it relates to wound healing, followed by a review of the literature as it applies to chronic wounds. Part 2 covers physical activity and nutrition.

This up-to-date resource for clinicians, policymakers and researchers is published as a supplement to the JOWM April issue. Access the document here:
