From decision making and communication, to education and clinical audit, Applied Wound Management (AWM) has a variety of applications as a wound assessment tool. Since its inception AWM has been adopted by many practitioners across the UK and has helped them to improve their clinical practice.
This supplement presents the work of some of these clinicians and includes projects from a variety of clinical areas. The supplement authors all recognised AWM as a tool that could help to facilitate effective wound care and adapted it to meet their local needs.
They were then approached to present their own experiences in this supplement. This is how we always hoped AWM would be used — as a flexible tool that allows each practitioner or clinical area to improve the delivery of care.
