Stakeholder Review - Draft Australian Standards for Wound Prevention and Management 2022

AMA members are invited to participate in reviewing the draft new Australian Standards for Wound Prevention and Management 2022.

Over the past two years the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA) in partnership with Wounds Australia has overseen a national project to update the Australian Standards for Wound Prevention and Management 2016. This project has been led by the WA Health Translation Network, a member of the AHRA. 

This draft fourth edition builds on the work completed for previous editions of the Australian Wound Standards and reflects current relevant standards, supporting clinical guidelines and other key evidence sources.

The AMA in consultation with AMA Council of General Practice will also be providing a submission.
