Patient experience

Living with a wound is not just about having an injury which requires treatment, it can also cause life-changing events.
 
Patients may find themselves having to cope with daily issues such as wound dressing changes, ongoing pain, odour and possible social isolation — all of which can negatively impact on quality of life and wellbeing.
 
Despite increasing pressure and demands on time, clinicians need to providing high value, quality care to improve the patient experience. Involving patients in the decision-making process can also help to alleviate the negative implications of having a wound and lead to optimal outcomes and a better patient experience.
