Wound assessment and planning: The key issues in wound care management

Hosted by The Nurses For Nurses Network

Assessment is a key component in wound management and the first step to enable wound care planning. We begin this session by exploring the physical, psychological and social factors that may impact wound healing before looking at wound assessment in detail as part of the interactive workshop.

We will explore different approaches to assessment, including wound measurement and photography. These are key communication strategies for the team of staff working with the client.

The second part of this workshop focuses on wound planning for best healing outcomes – what do you need, who is part of the team, and how do we achieve this?


At this workshop, you will:

  • gain an understanding of the importance of a holistic approach to wound assessment
  • explore wound measurement and photography as part of the wound assessment process
  • discuss wound planning as a client-centred goal for wound management
  • gain an understanding of the role of the clinician and teamwork for wound management planning
