The next step in the Wound Care Expert/FDA - Clinical Endpoint Project
Our Patients Have Spoken!
Announcing the results of the WEF-CEP Patient Survey
In a collaborative effort between the WHS, AAWC, and the FDA, the WEF-CEP goal is to identify clinically meaningful, evidence-based wound care endpoints for research and new product approvals. We have completed a survey of the professional wound care community that included 628 participants. The results, which identified 15 top-rated patient-centered and/or clinical endpoints, have been published in Wound Repair and Regeneration (March 2017). An additional publication presenting the research that supports these endpoints was recently accepted by WRR.
The next step was to survey the patient community. Through the efforts of many members in the WHS and AAWC we are proud to announce that we had a robust response and are now able to add the patient voice to our endpoint project.
