The new draft Australian Standards for Wound Prevention and Management 2022 are now ready for stakeholder review. Find out more below.

Interested stakeholders are being invited to review the draft Australian Standards for Wound Prevention and Management (2022) which was released for comment in late December 2021.

Over the past two years, the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA) in partnership with Wounds Australia has overseen a national project to update the 2016 Standards. This fourth edition builds on the work completed for previous editions of the Australian Wound Standards and reflects current relevant standards, supporting clinical guidelines and other key evidence sources.

To ensure that they are relevant and effective, it is critical that this updated version is reviewed by as many relevant stakeholders as possible.
