Health Quality Ontario released the following three wound care-related quality standards for all health care settings (including primary care, home and community care, long-term care, and acute care):
Each of the above quality standards includes a set of quality statements addressing areas that were identified as having high potential for improving the quality of care in Ontario for people who have developed, or are at risk of developing, a pressure injury, diabetic foot ulcer, or venous leg ulcer.
Although they are separate quality standards, many of the quality statements and their associated implementation tools overlap. To support the delivery of care outlined in the wound care quality statements into your practice, we have grouped together a sample of the tools and resources that are common across the three quality standards. Some of the information included in the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario Best Practice Guidelines support implementation of several quality statements. The links to each one of these best practice guidelines are included in the posts below.
Below are tools for implementation for specific wound care quality standards:
