Working together in the design and implementation of solutions aimed at excellence in advanced wound management.
Advanced wound management (Chronic wounds, pressure ulcers-also named pressure injuries, venous leg ulcers, arterial leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, incontinence associated dermatitis-IAD, complications in surgical wounds, complex wounds, traumatic wounds, Burns, skin tears, fungating wounds and low prevalence wounds such as EB), a problem generally not very visible to which is attributed 5% of the total expenditure on health care in developed countries. Nowadays it is an important challenge for Health Care organizations due to a large number of dynamic factors among which we can highlight:
The growing aging of the population, the increase of health problems such as diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular diseases, chronicity, the emergence of new technologies and healthcare contexts, the economic pressures to Health Care, the need to increase quality of care, the need to strengthen the culture of patient safety, the possibility of economic penalties and legal claims, the increasing pressure of ethics in care, the growing importance of institutional marketing for health institutions or the need for accreditations in quality issues for health institutions.
As in any other area of health care, there are a great number of opportunities to improve the prevention and treatment of wounds, and, with this, contribute to optimize advanced care of them, as well as increase the quality of care and the safety of patients, and contribute to achieving Health Systems with maximum profitability under the cost / benefit / opportunity point of view.
