Our first encounter with a patient includes a comprehensive assessment to identify wound causes, risk factors, and potential to heal. Next, we identify factors preventing wound healing and integrate other healthcare professionals and services to address them and achieve healing in a faster manner. wWe understand the important role of patients, families, and caregivers on their everyday care and strive to engage them in the development of a care plan that best meets their needs and preferences.

Follow-up consultations ensure integration of multiple specialties working together to address factors preventing healing and provide continuity of care until wounds have healed.

Referrals to specialists include: 

Social worker

Foot care nurses

Diabetes educator


Vascular surgeon

We also work with the North West Home and community Care to coordinate care for  clients with mobility issues who need to be seen at home. We provide guidance to home care about our wound care recommendations and progresses achieved.
