Caring for acute and chronic wounds imposes a multi-billion dollar burden on the Australian healthcare system with chronic wounds estimated to affect more than 430,000 Australians. Treatment of wounds accounts for three of the five most frequently performed procedures in general practice. With wound prevalence increasing with age there is an urgent need to develop new models of care to respond to this significant health problem.
In this workshop, participants will hear about the experiences of four health professionals who have been directly involved in implementing an innovative new model of care in the general practice setting. They will share with you practical strategies that you could adopt to implement change in your workplace to improve patient outcomes.
