In order to understand the link between stress and wound healing within a biopsychosocial model of care, this paper has reviewed themes emerging from a profession with recognised high stress levels amongst its employees: paramedicine. The paper uses paramedicine in order to identify themes that may also be relevant across other professions and considers how the clinician can factor this occupational dimension into any future care plan, in order to enhance overall wound care.
