Wound Management Clinic


Only 26% of all wounds will heal without some medical care. The Prince Edward Family Health Team provides local access to wound care support for rostered patients of all ages. Our wound management nurse provides consistent assessment and treatment of wounds and uses the most appropriate dressing products to promote wound healing.

• Quinte Healthcare Corporation (QHC)
• Our Dietitians
• Our Pharmacists
• Our Diabetes Nurse Educator
• Consulting Specialists, and
• Other care and service provides as necessary


The goals of the Wound Management Clinic are to:

• Provide high quality wound care based on best practice guidelines
• Develop patients' skills to manage wound care at home if appropriate
• Provide patients with information to help reduce the risks of infection and other complications


Our Wound Management Nurse will:

• Assess your wound
• Discuss treatment options
• Provide wound care
• Record healing progress
• Communicate regularly with your health care provider
• Provide education and skills training as needed
