Home Care - Wound Care

Updated recommendations with focus on family caregivers and related intervention challenges. 

The primary deliverable of this project is a EWMA tool kit on the topic ‘Home care – Wound care’, including a set of evidence-based and/or best practice-based resources specifically designed for patients and private care givers or primary care staff who provide wound care in the patient’s home. 

The project will include topics such as prevalence/epidemiology, organisation of wound care, patient assessment and clinical decision making. Further focus areas are pain management, nutritional advise, and technological advances in the home care setting.

Because there is a limited evidence base in this area, the recommendations included in the tool kit will be based on a simple literature review as well as best practice recommendations.
