Abstract

Management and treatment of wounds is costly to health care. As such,
accurate wound assessment is an essential skill required to enhance the
wound healing process. Wound assessment tools are available to assist
practitioners to ensure that wounds are correctly assessed, healing
is documented, and factors that could delay healing are identified and
appropriately managed. In an attempt to understand current practices a
survey was undertaken of delegates attending the Wound Expo 2011 wound
assessment zone to provide a clearer insight into today’s practises and
opinions relating to wound assessment. The results were collated and are
presented in this article.
