MALVERN, Pa., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC) is pleased to have partnered with the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) and the Australian Wound Management Association (AWMA) to develop an unprecedented guidance document entitled, "Managing Wounds as a Team."
"AAWC is extremely pleased to have worked collaboratively with EWMA and AWMA to create a patient-centered, multidisciplinary document for all healthcare professionals that seeks to shift the paradigm regarding how practitioners approach patient care, specifically wound healing. The ultimate goal is for providers to practice as a true, multidisciplinary team – a team where the patient is at the center and advocates also play a critical role," stated Dr. Robert J. Snyder, Past President of AAWC and one of the co-authors of the manuscript.
In partnership with EWMA since 2008 and AWMA since 2013, the AAWC looks forward to continued collaboration with these and other international associations. Read the joint international paper in the Journal of Wound Care.
