The Supply and Distribution workstream of the National Wound Care Strategy Programme is an enabler workstream to support the work of the three clinical workstream groups (lower limb, surgical wounds and pressure ulcers) and to develop recommendations to support implementation of the recommended pathways and standards. The workstream will be delivering a series of objectives;
- To provide guidance to health care professionals on the supply and distribution of wound care products
- To develop principles of good practice for ordering, supply and distribution of wound care products which are applicable across primary, secondary and community care settings and enable standard approaches to be adopted at STP/ICS level;
- To deliver recommendations about the review of wound care product use at national, regional and local level and to identify unwanted variation and to develop recommendations;
- To share examples of good practice to support widespread implementation
This presentation will share the emerging draft recommendations and guidance and discuss the challenges of implementation.
