Wounds can be life threatening. Access has developed a interdisciplinary model of care consisting of collaboration between Therapists and Wound Care Nurses to prevent, assess and effectively treat wounds. Clients at high risk for wounds or who have active wounds are ideal for this service.
Our wound care services consist of a joint assessment with an experienced OT or PT and Wound Ostomy Continence Nurse. A full assessment is completed and a report with recommendations is provided to the client's caregivers and funding provider. If active treatment is required, the Therapist and Nurse will be able to follow the client as required to carry through the recommendations.
