mywound support programme
mywound provides 12 weeks of dedicated information, sent to you by email in bite-size chunks. Every week there is a PDF for you to download or print containing practical information about how to care for wounds, written by talkhealth and medical experts.
Wound care is of the utmost importance following a burn, surgery or injury in order to limit the chance of infection and preserve the skin’s function.
Some of the topics the programme covers include:
- Stages of wound healing
- Pain management
- Patient stories and hints & tips
- Stitch removal
- Scar prevention and much more!
The information and articles helped me a lot to manage my symptoms.

It was very interesting to know the healing porocess and what I can do to get the best outcome, it was also important to boost my confidence and feel less shy and less scared to ask for help and for support.

Could be very helpful for patients with wounds that refuse to close.

Brilliant project helping others with healing of wounds and scars. My scar is numb but hurts in the cold and heat. There was lots of great tips in keeping your scar supple and to enable healing. Really good support and if you have any questions they won't hesitate to help you.

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be part of mywound support group and sharing the in depth support programme with me as I learned so much from this, various kind of wounds, causes, healing, pain and how what to apply on them as the sample you sent me healed my scar and is completely diminished. I received so much useful information and so pleased to have been part of this support group. Thank you so much.

Having a bad head wound was scary. The step by step explanations were helpful and reassuring. My wound seemed to be slow in healing but after reading the fact sheets I realised that it was healing at the correct pace. It's also good to know the process of healing as this is reassuring when you know what's going on. Nearly 4 months later it's still not completely healed but well on the way and I know that this is normal. Thank you.

I found the support programme both informative and comforting. The knowledge gained on how to care for scars and knowing others are also suffering therefore not feeling alone. The programme gave me comfort and knowledge and for that I am grateful.
