  • Reduce the number of wounds that occur because of lack of knowledge, inattention and inappropriate or missing early interventions
  • Provide better wound treatments to shorten the duration and severity of wounds.
  • Prevent patient suffering and improve patient quality of life
  • Lower total costs related to wounds, to individuals, health-care systems and society as a whole
  • Properly mentor and/or collaborate with other health-care professional colleagues.
