Introduction: This survey of wound care specialists in the UK was the first study to establish the prevalence of mobile wound app use and the perceived barriers to their implementation in wound care. This article presents the qualitative findings of the study. Method: A cross-sectional survey of UK-based wound clinicians was undertaken to explore the current usage of mobile applications in the field of wound care. A 40 question SurveyMonkey survey was distributed via closed Facebook groups for clinicians working in UK-based wound care services. Data analysis included thematic analysis of free text responses. The STROBE checklist was considered within the methodology of the study. Results: Overall, n=250 survey responses were received. Complete survey responses were received from n=153 wound clinicians. This included responses from n=121 nurses and n=29 podiatrists and from clinicians from all four devolved nations of the UK. Conclusions: Barriers affecting the implementation of mobile applications in wound care services include a lack of interoperability between mobile applications and other IT infrastructure, poor Wi-Fi signal, negative attitudes towards technology, a lack of workforce diversity and bureaucratic obstructions. Implications for practice: Clinical leaders in wound care should consider the factors identified within this study when developing implementation strategies for new mobile application technologies in wound care services.
