Association For The Advancement Of Wound Care's Pressure Ulcer Guidelines Published By National Guideline Clearinghouse

MALVERN, Pa., Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC) announces that its pressure ulcer guidelines have been published on the National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC) website. NGC is an initiative of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. AAWC's guidelines can be found under the Guideline Title, "Association for the Advancement of Wound Care Guideline of Pressure Ulcer Guidelines."

Guidelines are systematically developed statements to assist the practitioner and patient in decisions about appropriate healthcare. The AAWC Guidelines Taskforce developed a comprehensive, content-validated and evidence-based set of guidelines to assist in improving chronic wound outcomes. Independent reviewers from multidisciplinary backgrounds content-validated adaptations of recommendations from all current major pressure ulcer guidelines. Next, the AAWC Guidelines Taskforce searched the literature to provide the best available evidence to support each recommendation. AAWC refers to its pressure ulcer guideline as the "Guideline of Pressure Ulcer Guidelines,", because it uniquely offers more than consensus-based guidelines.

AAWC President Terry Treadwell, M.D., FACS extends appreciation on behalf of the Association to the members of the AAWC Guidelines Taskforce for their hard work and dedication in providing these comprehensive guidelines and extends his congratulations on the guidelines being accepted by National Guideline Clearinghouse.  The guidelines are also available on the AAWC website: www.aawconline.org.

ABOUT AAWC - AAWC is the largest, not-for-profit, multi-specialty membership organization in the United States dedicated to the research and clinical application of evidence-based wound care. As the leader in interdisciplinary wound healing and tissue preservation, AAWC offers membership and accompanying benefits to everyone involved in wound care; including healthcare professionals, patients, lay-caregivers, clinics/facilities, corporations, students, retirees, and advocates.
