Wound Care Patient Support Programme

The skin is the largest organ of the body. Acting as a barrier from the outside world, it keeps the body protected from infections and temperature changes. Injuries can damage this protective layer, leading to wounds, scarring and potential risks such as infection. Wound care is of the utmost importance following a burn, surgery or injury to limit the chance of infection and preserve the skins function. Further to the advice a medical professional will provide following an injury or burn, self-management techniques are important to help you take control of your health.

Our talkhealth Wound Care Patient Support Programme (PSPs) are suitable for all those who are living with wounds, whether you have recently developed your injury or you have been managing your wound for some time, and the carers of someone who has a wound or scar of some sort.

talkhealth Patient Support Programmes (PSPs) offer you the chance to receive free online information, support and advice that it is specific to your condition. While on the programme you will receive an email once a week which will provide you with a link to new downloadable information such as hints and tips, lifestyle advice and up to date information from experts. The information we have created for this programme has been designed to enable you to better manage your condition and symptoms more effectively as well as improving your quality of life:

PSPs will last for around 3 to 6 months, and you are free to join and unsubscribe from the programme at any time.
