EWMA Positioning Paper "Wound Bed Preparation in Practice"

Abstract

The last two decades have focused on improving the healing rates of patients with a wide range of chronic wounds. It is now realistic to expect that, with evidence-based care, many wounds will heal uneventfully within a reasonable timeframe. Despite overall improvements, however, there remains a small but significant proportion of chronic wounds that fail to heal even with the highest standard of care. The management of these wounds has therefore come under scrutiny and attention has turned to the factors that influence their healing and to the preparation of the wound bed.
