The "self-treatment of wounds for venous leg ulcers checklist“ – Do you know the recommended steps to follow?

Patients who have chronic wounds such as leg ulcers should be active participants in their treatment and care.

The aim of the study was to develop a Checklist to assist nurses to appraise the conduct of wound treatment when undertaken by the patient.

A three-phase mixed methods study was conducted. A systematic and evidence-based approach to developing and using structured observations for the study of health behavior guided the process of developing, piloting, and refining the Checklist.

The resulting "Self-Treatment of Wounds for Venous Leg Ulcers Checklist" (STOW-V Checklist V1.0) can assist the nurse to evaluate the conduct of key self-treatment behaviors in the areas of equipment and workspace, hand hygiene, wound dressing removal, skincare, wound cleansing, and debridement, wound assessment, wound dressing application, and compression therapy application.
