WHY WOUND CARE?TM
This campaign was developed to address healthcare workforce issues that may affect optimal care for patients with, or who are at risk for developing, wounds.
An aging population combined with an increase in the prevalence of persons with diabetes/obesity signals a future epidemic of chronic wounds. Nurses with the knowledge and skills to help prevent and manage wounds are in high demand across all patient care settings.
