Aims and objectives

The overall aim of the document is to achieve a uniform and consistent approach to diagnosis and treatment of lower leg ulcers across Europe, taking into consideration the various structural differences.
Across Europe, it should be clear, that all patients with a non-healing lower leg wound:

  • Must receive a differential diagnosis, defining the wound as either arterial, venous or atypical (The project will exclude pressure ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers, as comprehensive guidelines exist for these wound types).
  • Must receive a diagnosis at the recommended time, with reference to the occurrence and healing status.

 

The document is published as a supplement to the Journal of Wound Management, vol. 24, 1.
