The Collaborative Appraisal & Recommendation for Education or CARE Instrument is designed to provide a set of standards that support health-care providers, wound management leaders, educators, purchasing managers, administrators, organizations and health authorities to undertake a comprehensive, collaborative and evidence-informed appraisal process before developing or introducing a wound management education initiative. The Wound CARE Instrument will:

  1. Provide a foundation to identify the components required to plan, develop, implement, evaluate and sustain evidence-informed wound management education and programming.
  2. Provide a benchmark to appraise the quality of wound management education and programming.
  3. Support collaboration in the development and implementation of wound management education and programming.
  4. Inform decisions related to the endorsement, adoption, adaption, purchase or rejection of wound management education and programming.
  5. Improve patient care and health outcomes relating to the prevention and management of wounds.
