Traditionally, wound care has been taught through case examples and best clinical practice. However, with the increased importance of providing evidence-based practice, we have now moved from random clinical practice experiential learning, with traditional ungrounded opinions, to learning based on evidence.
In an effort to improve and standardize patient care outcomes, evidence based wound management has gained significant importance. By using evidence based wound management when treating wounds, answers to common problems can be addressed resulting in improved patient outcomes.
Evidence-based medicine has been defined as the “conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients.” The practice of evidence-based medicine involves combining individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research.
