This publication represents the outcome of a meeting of international wound care experts held in Barcelona, Spain, in October 2023.

In 2022, a document was published introducing the concept of Wound Balance: a multifactorial approach to achieving wound healing, encompassing scientific understanding, patient-centered care and clinical decision making.

This current document represents a further step in the development and implementation of this concept, specifically with the aim of providing a summary of the expert group’s recommendations regarding:

  • Providing wound care in the most appropriate setting for each individual patient
  • Assessing quality of life (QoL) in people with chronic wounds, both in clinical research and in everyday practice
  • Educational needs of non-specialist healthcare professionals regarding wound care
  • Strategies for disseminating education on wound balance to a wider population of healthcare professionals, patients and careers.
