What are the quality indicators in wound care?

01/06/09 | Service delivery | Karen Ousey, Richard H Shorney

This paper discusses quality indicators that relate to wound care. As clinicians will be assessed against national quality indicators from April 2010, it is important for carers working in tissue viability to gain an understanding of what they are. The Darzi report (Department of Health, 2008) identified that high quality care for patients is an aspiration that is only possible with high quality education and training for all staff involved in NHS services. Continued education and promotion of quality in the field of tissue viability will be more attainable if the NHS, higher education institutions and industry strengthen their partnerships.
