Question Title

Wound classification systems are useful tools to characterise diabetes-related foot ulcers (DFU) and are utilised for the purpose of clinical assessment, to promote effective communication between health professionals, and to support clinical audit and benchmarking. Australian guidelines regarding wound classification in patients with DFU are outdated. We aimed to adapt existing international guidelines for wound classification to develop new evidence-based Australian guidelines for wound classification in people with diabetes and DFU.

In 2020, a national multi-disciplinary expert panel established by Diabetes Feet Australia aimed to develop a new Australian guideline on Wound Classification by adapting suitable international DFU guidelines to the Australian context.

We now encourage all Australian health professionals, researchers and peak bodies with any interest to read the consultation draft of the Australian Wound Classification guideline and complete the below consultation survey on your impressions.
