Quick Guide: Introducing Wound Balance

Supported by HARTMANN
23 October 2023

Wound balance is a concept that aims to integrate various critical parameters which offer continuity, individualised care and support clinical decision-making, to place the patient at the centre of all care. With patient goals being priority, the shift in focus moves from managing wounds to leveraging intention of healing wounds whenever possible and as early as possible. 

The wound balance approach aims to provide clinicians with the information to understand the science of wound healing, in addition to the skills in how to communicate this effectively with patients to help them to get the best out of their treatments and, ultimately, achieve good clinical outcomes.
