Research into the effectiveness of the Lindsay Leg Club® model

In many parts of the UK and Australia the Leg Club model is recognised by commissioning groups and healthcare providers as a valued part of the ongoing care of the elderly and other members of the community at risk of health breakdown. This paper outlines the latest evidence for the effectiveness of Leg Clubs and discusses the future role that a social model of care can play within the wound management arena. 

Much Leg Club research has been retrospective, and the Leg Club Foundation has spent many years identifying the best methods for creating a data entry system that is robust and simple to use at the local level but that can be analysed in a variety of ways at the macro level. The Leg Club database may be one of the largest single repositories of data on leg ulcer progression; therefore, it is hoped it will become a useful tool for all those involved in managing the provision of care and treatment in this area.
