The Triangle of Wound Assessment

The Triangle of Wound Assessment is a holistic wound assessment framework, introducing an intuitive way to asses and manage all three areas of the wound: wound bed, wound edge and periwound skin.

To support optimal clinical decision making, it is important to consider all three areas of the triangle 1,2.

Taking wound assessment beyond the edge

We asked health care professionals around the world:

What are the important areas to look for when assessing the wound?

 

Your response was clear: when it comes to managing wounds you take into account the wound bed, wound edge and the periwound skin, because each have a significant importance for wound healing3.

What was missing was an intuitive, easy to use wound assessment framework that considered all three areas.

 

Our response is the Triangle of Wound Assessment
