The long awaited launch of the Wound Healing and Management (WHAM) Node took place prior to the Annual General Meeting of the WA branch of the Australian Wound Management Association (AWMA) on Friday 17TH September 2010.
Launched by the Co-Chair of the Node's Expert Reference Group and AWMA President, Associate Professor Bill McGuiness, significant interest in the inception of the Node was evident, with wound care specialists from the acute, aged and community care sectors, and representatives from the local universities and the WA Centre for Evidence Informed Practice (WACEIHP) in attendance.
The new Node represents a collaborative partnership between the WACEIHP, AWMA and the Joanna Briggs Institute. In its first year, WACEIHP Project Officer Grace Frances has produced more than 30 evidence summaries for the Node with more in the pipeline for next year. These evidence summaries can be accessed through JBI COnNECT+.
