Comorbidities related to diabetes such as chronic wounds can increase the need for surgical procedures, with at least 10% of all patients undergoing surgery having diabetes. Being diagnosed with diabetes can be seen as a risk factor for developing wound healing problems. Discussion: This short report highlights the potential positive influences gained from providing resilience education and self- management education to people with type 2 diabetes, potentially enhancing self-managing abilities and reducing poor wound healing. Summary: Modern wound care practice is centred on symptom reduction and working with pathology; however, working with people to enhance their personal resilience and promoting positive psychological adaptation can impact positively on their mental health.
