Call for Public Vetting of Updated Wound Healing Guidelines! 

Through the diligent effort of a project overseen by Dr. Rob Kirsner, the WHS wound healing guidelines originally published in 2006 have been updated. The four draft documents which highlight research published since those original publications are now available for public review.  Comments on the drafted updates will be accepted until July 1, 2014.  Of particular importance is review for perceived bias, clarity of writing and whether critical studies have been omitted or overlooked.   Anyone who wishes to comment must provide a declaration of interests. Please keep in mind that all written documents they are obsolete by the time they are published, so it is possible that there are recent publications that are not included. 

Comments may be submitted directly to Dr. Kirsner at RKirsner@med.miami.edu.

Once public vetting is complete the draft guidelines will be revised as necessary and reviewed by the respective committees before being finalized.
