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!
Knowledge is power and understanding helps to speed healing.

Well addressed and received this programme, it helps you all the way through from start to finish with easy to read instructions to follow. I will recommend it to my friends and family. It taught me a fair few things that I did not know.

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.
