26/06/13 | Events, Service delivery, Societies | Karen Ousey, Karen-Leigh Edward

Wound care is an international area of nursing and medical expertise, and one where care intervention is truly inter-professional. Clinicians in all countries can collaborate with one another to improve patient care, ensuring that the patient’s journey is based on the best available evidence and research. With the growth of social media, video conferencing, Skype™, and other forms of virtual communication, it has never been easier for clinicians to communicate with one another, and become immersed in collaborative research and the sharing of best practice. Here, the authors present an insight into an effective collaboration between nurse academics based at universities in the UK and Australia.
