Article: Wound care in the spotlight [PDF]

A series of reports highlighting the need for better education and a greater focus on wound care.

With more than 4.5% of the population living with a wound at any one time at an estimated cost of £5.3bn to the NHS, it is clear that this is an area that needs more attention. In this series of ActivHeal sponsored articles, we aim to shed light on the real cost of wound care, and how, with access to better education and initiatives such as the National Wound Care Strategy, this can change.

The series of five articles includes:

  • Wound Care Education in the Spotlight
  • Counting the Cost of Wound Care
  • The Role of Education in Wound Care
  • Clear and Present Danger: The Rise of Antimicrobial Resistance
  • The Past, Present and Future of Wound Care
