Made Easy: Wound bed preparation

Wound bed preparation (WBP) assists clinicians to identify and address the barriers of wound healing to create an optimal wound healing environment. WBP is a multifaceted approach that includes cleansing and debridement to enhance the effectiveness of therapeutic measures and prepare the wound for healing (Falanga, 2000; Schultz et al, 2003). The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in supported self-care, but this has focused mainly on ensuring the supply of wound dressings, and that patients can identify wound deterioration and change dressings. As the effects of the pandemic continue, there is an opportunity to formalise a supported self-care framework for patients and carers that includes WBP.
