Wound Awareness Week 24–30 August 2020

Wound Awareness Week is an exciting opportunity to increase awareness of what skin tears are, who is at risk and strategies to manage wounds if they fail to heal. Additionally, Wound Awareness Week is an opportunity to provide education and information to those working across a variety of health disciplines; including general practice, aged care, community and district health board services, allied health care professionals, and many others. This education and information will contribute to evidence-based practice, skill and knowledge development and ultimately contribute to positive outcomes for consumers.
