EWMA Project: Living with Chronic Wounds

Project period: 2019–2020

With the Living With Chronic Wounds (LWCW) project, EWMA aims to illustrate the experience of the wound patient in a number of recorded interviews with the patient, the health care professional(s) responsible for the treatment and care of the patient, as well as a representative of the health care institution. The most common types of non-healing wounds are represented, among others diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and venous leg ulcers.

The objective was to produce a series of videos that illustrates the patients' experiences and the various challenges and approaches to wound management experienced and undertaken by wound care professionals and their organisations.

The videos were created by filmmaker Aurora Piaggesi. Copyright © EWMA 2018. The videos are available for use in education, advocacy activities and various communication activities.
