Wound Care (WC) (2011-2012)Welcome to the Wound Care Systemmatic Review. The expert workgroup was assigned the responsibility of researching evidence-based information to support guidelines for medical nutrition therapy for individuals with wounds. To learn more about the workgroup's thought process, please read the Introduction.
The systematic review was published in 2011-2012. Highlights of this project include five (5) sub-topic areas of:
- Energy needs
- Fluid Needs
The 2012 EAL Wound Care expert workgroup developed questions for systematic reviews to build upon the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel and European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP-EPUAP) Prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers: clinical practice guideline (2009).
In 2014, NPUAP-EPUAP updated teh 2009 pressure ulcer clinical practice guideline. The methodology used by this organization was approved by the Academy's Evidence-based Practice Committee. The NPUAP-EPUAP guideline has also been accepted by, and published on, the National Guideline Clearninghouse (NGC) which requires alignment with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (previously know as IOM).
To learn more about the NPUAP-EPUAP Guideline, visit NPUAP-EPUAP.
To view the recommendation, visit NGC.
