About the South West Regional Wound Care Program

The South West Regional Wound Care Program (SWRWCP) advocates for the integrated delivery of evidence-informed skin and wound care that spans the continuum of care. In collaboration with our healthcare sector partners (hospitals, long-term care, community service provider agencies, and primary care facilities), the SWRWCP delivers a coordinated strategy of skin and wound care informed by best practice, which can be found on this website.

How do we achieve this?

  • Develop and Implement an educational framework that promotes best practice for wound prevention and management
  • Encourage the exploration of new technologies
  • Support quality research
  • Promote an interdisciplinary team approach
  • Assist in cross-sectoral relationship development, communication, and transitions in care
  • Implement a system of performance monitoring and quality reporting
