Local Wound Care Resources

WBP Paradigm Local wound care involves assessing and monitoring the wound history and physical characteristics and:
  • Wound debridement;
  • Assessment and treatment of increased bacterial burden or infection and inflammation;
  • Management of moisture, including appropriate wound cleansing and dressing selection, and;
  • Re-assessment of the wound and consideration of adjunctive therapy use.

The following resources are intended for health care providers involved in skin and wound care, to use to educate themselves, their co-workers, and/or their patients.  The guidelines, procedures, tools, posters and teaching resources can also be taken, modified as necessary, and implemented in health care facilities within copyright restrictions (which are noted with specific tools where applicable) and with approval from your organization's senior managers.
