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!
I feel that anyone would benefit from these kinds of support programmes. There is not enough information given to deal with these problems. My wound was due to surgery, I had surgery twice and they entered through the old scar. Your support programme helped me go through the delayed healing of my wound and helped me to use creams and moisturisers on the scars. I was scared to touch my scars but your programme gave me the confidence I needed.
This is an extremely informative support programme offering excellent advice and information about all aspects of wound healing and wound care, I would highly recommend it to anyone with a wound or following surgery to aid in their healing.
Very informative and helpful. Great information given in frequent small doses, easy to understand and very useful. Definitely answered lots of my questions about my wound and great advice to help it heal.
Great advice, helpful hints and advice from other peoples experiences, and links to organisations who can advise.
Following surgery the support from the hospital was minimal based purely on the follow up out-patient quick appointment so the mywound programme was a go to site written in plain English and with the stages programme that along with another site helped me to care for and pay attention to the scar and the healing process as well as any possible negatives that actually did not happen.
It was helpful in finding out ways of dealing with my wound, things to try and thunk about. And knowing other people out there have similar problems. And learning about the different websites helps to find more information and talk with other people about it.
A brilliant programme full of helpful tips and advice.
Great support network that helped me gain good insight into my wound healing with support and advice to heal my wound with minimal scaring
The mywound programme has helped and given me details on how to look after my wound and scar. The programme was step by step informing on how to recover and change my lifestyle to make a good recovery and give me confidence to move ahead.
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.
Very helpful, would recommend to anyone struggling.
Has been very detailed and helpful. Relevant to my needs, somewhere to turn to.
An excellent service.
Such an informative programme which helped out enormously. After having surgery and a scar on my face this really helped with the process of dealing with my scar also emotionally.
