WUWHS STORY

Founded in Australia in 2000, the World Union of Wound Healing Societies (WUWHS) has a stated mission, which includes various points and targets.


Firstly, to improve wound care standards for patients, improve healthcare professional performances and facilitate universal access in all health care systems.


Secondly, to educate all health care professionals in interdisciplinary team approaches that deliver best practice for improved patient outcomes, and to disseminate the educational and training toolkits created in practical, relevant and adaptable formats to meet local needs.


Thirdly, to appraise and organize the database in order to facilitate best practice and optimize patient care. To accomplish this mission requires either large-scale randomized clinical trials or multi-centered prospective database accumulation efforts.


Finally, and most importantly, the mission of the WUWHS is to co-ordinate a world-wide exchange of information between wound societies and other relevant bodies, including international and global agencies - as well as promoting personal-level friendship exchanges.
