Effective communication to ensure maintenance of a seamless quality
service for patients being transferred to the community from the acute
sector with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is essential. This
paper reports the findings of a focus group convened to explore the
decision making process; controversy or conflict surrounding the decisionmaking
process; perceived barriers to seamless discharge and potential
benefits of developing a UK standardized NPWT discharge documentation.
A proposed algorithm is presented as a template for practitioners to
use when discharging patients to the community to enhance timely and
effective transfer.
