As wound carers we are faced with many challenges on a daily basis. These not only include managing our patient case load, but also teaching both family care givers and our colleagues. Traditionally, wound care has been taught through case examples and best clinical practice. However, with the increased importance of providing evidence-based practice, we have now moved from random clinical practice experiential learning, with traditional ungrounded opinions, to learning based on evidence. Such evidence ranges from expert opinion to comparative studies and randomised controlled trials (Krugman, 2003).
