SOLUTIONS & BARRIERS FOR DELIVERING BEST PRACTICE
Friday, May 22, 2020
1000 - 1045
This study examined the perspectives of health-care professionals on the barriers and solutions to delivery of patient-focused wound management and outcomes. A qualitative, descriptive study design was used. Participants were health-care managers, clinical leaders, nurses and allied health members who are part of wound care services. Open-ended surveys were distributed to participants of a series of learning workshops, and data analysed to identify leading themes. Results: A total of 261 participants took part and 194 surveys were returned (a response rate of 74%). Five themes emerged from the analysis: patient/family wound-related education; health-care professional wound-related education; implementation of evidence-based wound care and dissemination of evidence-based wound information across professions and contexts; teamwork and respectful communication within teams; and a higher value and priority placed on wound care through collaborative teams by managers, leaders and policymakers.
