  • Known physiological differences between acute and chronic wounds
  • Understanding factors that may have an impact on normal healing physiology
  • Identifying what the wound tissues require in order to restore the correct healing pathway
  • Reviewing wound products available within Australia
  • Examining the specific management of common wounds seen in community settings.
