1. Wasted Cost
Every year billions of dollars are spent on wound care in the acute, primary settings and residential aged care settings.
Studies have shown that much of this cost is due to inefficiency and waste.
2. Reduced Complications
Wound deterioration and related mortality is almost always avoidable when evidence-based care is provided.
This approach reduces complications and overall treatment times.
3. Avoidable Suffering
Most importantly is the effect wounds can have on the patient. Those with wounds also suffer from extreme
chronic pain, immobility, social isolation, recurrent wounds sometimes resulting in amputation or death.
