Patient Education

Chronic wounds are wounds that haven’t improved significantly within a month, or have not healed entirely in two months. The best approach for handling chronic wounds is management by an interdisciplinary team consisting of health care professionals working together in a collaborative, supporting manner. This is the basis for Deaconess Wound Services.

People with chronic, non-healing wounds, often experience a marked reduction in quality of life. Understanding types of wounds and wound prevention is an important part of wound care.  To help you understand chronic, non-healing wounds we offer information and resources to help.
