The HUG “wound healing" group was formed following a practical assessment of the prevalence of bedsores at the institution.
Quick preventive action has helped to reduce their impact, demonstrate the benefit of continuing education among care providers and maintain the resources deemed to be a priority.
Care providers and doctors from surgical and medical disciplines in the divisions most concerned are increasingly interested in the management of all chronic wounds, including diabetic wounds, ulcers and oncological wounds.
Wounds are the reason for many consultations and hospitalizations, and are also the consequence of prolonged hospital stays. It is a significant condition in terms of health costs.
The main objectives are simplification, standardization and optimization of care practices and of the use of existing products.
Group members work in collaboration with the pharmacy, the hospital divisons, office-based care providers and of course the patient.
Training for care providers and the patient is an objective that occupies a large part of the group's activity and helps to encourage prevention.
