Established in 1995, the Canadian Association of Wound Care (CAWC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing skin health and wound management in Canada. Under the banner of Wounds Canada, the organization is a leader in moving the latest evidence into the public domain to support best practices in skin- and wound-related care to improve the lives of all Canadians.

Our efforts fall into four categories:

Advocacy and Awareness

Bringing awareness to Canadians of issues related to skin health and wound management to improve patient self-management activities and prevent costly and devastating wound-related complications; making recommendations to governments that will result in better patient outcomes and cost savings.

Education

Creating educational materials and programs for all stakeholders.

Research

Supporting, co-ordinating and promoting skin and wound research, communicating the results of research to stakeholders in a form they can use, identifying gaps that researchers can address

Partnerships

Working with other organizations to advance skin health and effective wound care in Canada.
