Wound Management Collaborative
Did you know that up to 3% of our population over 60 are affected by leg ulcers?*
We are seeking general practices in our region to join our Wound Management Collaborative for venous leg ulcers. This quality improvement initiative aims to improve wound outcomes and experience of care for patients over the duration of the program.
If you have patients at your practice with current venous leg ulcers or wounds that are likely to be diagnosed as venous leg ulcers, we encourage you to submit the expression of interest form below.
How Does the Nine Month Collaborative Work?
1. Orientation Workshop and Baseline Data
Practices will commence with an orientation workshop where participants are presented key elements of the program in further detail. We will collect baseline data (see ‘Data Collection’ below) for the patients you have enrolled in the program.
2. Learning Workshops
Practices will attend three learning workshops over the duration of the program where they will meet other participating practices, be presented with quality improvement activities, and hear from guest speakers.
3. Activity Periods
Practices will take what they have learned in the learning workshops and implement ‘systems change ideas’ at their practice over the three month activity period with support from their GP Support Officer and the Program Development Officer.
4. Data Collection
Following baseline data collection, practices will submit monthly data for their wound care-related measures via the PenCAT Audit Tool to track system change improvements.
Benefits to your practice
- Free training and resources for chronic wound care management, specifically venous leg ulcers
- Quality improvement activity contributing to PIP QI
The Wound Management Collaborative runs for 9 months.
