Wound Care Management

Chronic wounds negatively affect quality of life. A comprehensive wound care plan is necessary to promote healing or prevent worsening conditions. We are committed to providing evidence-informed interventions tailored to each patient's unique needs. From the initial assessment to treatment and ongoing management, the goal is to optimize wound healing and improve your overall well-being.

Our Approach to Wound Care:

Comprehensive Assessment:

We begin by conducting a thorough assessment of your wound, taking into account its location, size, depth, type of exudate and underlying causes.

Personalized Treatment Plans:

Based on assessment findings, a personalized treatment plan is developed tailored to your specific wound care needs. Our approach integrates evidence-informed practices while considering factors such as your overall health, diagnoses, diet and lifestyle, to obtain an effective treatment plan.

Wound Dressings and Technologies:

We utilize a wide range of wound dressings and technologies to facilitate healing. From hydrocolloids, alginate dressings, antimicrobial dressings to negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), we leverage innovative solutions to create an optimal wound healing environment.

Wound Debridement:

When necessary, wound debridement is performed. This is a process that involves removing dead or unhealthy tissue to promote wound healing. Debridement techniques such as sharp debridement and autolytic debridement, are used to ensure the removal of non-viable tissue.

Infection Control:

Preventing and managing wound infections is crucial for wound healing. We employ strict infection control protocols to minimize the risk of infection and effectively manage existing infections. Your wound is closely monitored, and appropriate antimicrobial treatments are applied. Education to empower you in preventing infections is also provided.

Patient and Caregiver Education:

We believe that education plays a vital role in wound healing and long-term management. Comprehensive education on wound care is provided to the patient, family and caregivers, to address proper dressing changes, signs of complications, and strategies for self-care. We strive to equip patients with knowledge and skills necessary to actively participate in their own wound care journey.

Multidisciplinary Collaboration:

Our wound care services are delivered in collaboration with multidisciplinary team members, including family doctors/physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and dieticians. This collaborative approach ensures that all aspects of wound care are addressed comprehensively, incorporating various perspectives and expertise for optimal outcomes and well-being.
