Beyond the wound - Bringing best practice to the bedside


Key Messages

Wound management alone will not guarantee a healed wound and may result in recurrence. Successful wound healing requires:

  • An individualised management plan
  • Addressing all contributing factors
  • The involvement of an interdisciplinary team
  • Early referral to tertiary SCI service when required
  • The person to be actively engaged in the process of self-management
  • The involvement of families and carers to motivate and support the person
