The 'Resources for Health Care Providers' pages are intended to be accessed by:

  • Front line health care providers involved in skin and wound care;
  • Health care managers, facilitators, administrators, and leaders;
  • Clinical educators;
  • Professional groups with an interest in skin and wound care;
  • 'Wound Care Champions', and;
  • Health care students and schools.

Here you will find links to important information about evidence-informed skin and wound care, including (but not limited to):

  • Patient and wound assessment, management and prevention guidelines, tools and algorithms;
  • Self-care dressing guides;
  • Patient pamphlets;
  • Links to articles, documents and websites of interest;

The resouces found on the 'Resouces for Health Care Providers' pages 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, tools, algorithms, and patient enablers 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.

We sincerely hope that this website will be a useful and interactive space for all of you, and we welcome your feedback lyndsay.orr@lhins.on.ca
