The European Wound Management Association (EWMA) is a European not-for-profit umbrella organisation, linking national wound management organisations, individuals and groups with interest in wound care. EWMA’s objective is to support implementation of interdisciplinary and cost-effective wound care of high quality to improve European wound patients’ quality of life. To reach this objective EWMA works as an educational resource, organises conferences, contributes to international projects related to wound management and support implementation of existing knowledge within wound management.
Role within Force Repair
EWMA has a big network of wound care professionals across Europe. On the one hand EWMAs network of wound care professionals will be used to understand the priorities and needs of health care professionals and patients so that FORCE REPAIR reflects the needs of various communities. On the other hand, EWMA will be used to communicate about project results and application via EWMA’s various communication channels (EWMA annual conference, Journal of Wound Management, EWMA newsletter).
