Call for Input: Draft Australian Wound Standards 2022

Helen Hughes Uncategorised

The Australian Health Research Alliance’s Wound Care Initiative has opened calls to review the recently-released draft Australian Standards for Wound Prevention and Management 2022.

This fourth edition of the Standards builds on the work completed for previous editions of the Australian Wound Standards and reflects current relevant standards, supporting clinical guidelines and other key evidence sources.

The Standards provide a framework for delivering best practice in wound prevention and management, in order to facility high-quality clinical practice that achieves good health outcomes for people with wounds, or at risk of wounding.

Development of the new Standards has been led by WA Health Translation Network (WAHTN) with contributions from Wounds Australia, over the past two years.

Now, to ensure that they are relevant and effective, it is critical that the updated version is reviewed by as many relevant stakeholders as possible.

The Australian Standards are relevant to regulated health professionals, unregulated health care workers, educators, researchers and service providers across Australia. The final document is intended for use by organisations delivering wound care services, wound care practitioners, people receiving wound care and their family carers.

Read the Draft Standards on the WAHTN website, and provide feedback via the Review Tool no later than Friday 12 February.
