Access to Wound Care in Ontario - A Patient Survey

Healthcare providers and organizations in Ontario have a long history of commitment to improving the quality of wound care. For decades, many Hospitals, Long-Term Care Homes and community provider agencies have developed wound assessment, management and prevention protocols and educational plans independent of each other. These unique, organization-specific approaches have resulted in inconsistencies as patients are transitioned from one organization to another and from one healthcare sector to another.
