1. Ostomy Wound Manage. 2006 Nov;52(11):57-66. The AAWC conceptual framework of quality systems for wound care. Paine TG(1), Milne CT, Barr JE, Cordrey R, Dieter S, Harwood J, Sawyer A, Trepanier K, Woelfel S; Quality of Care Task Force, Association for Advanced Wound Care. Author information: (1)Washington Wound Care Clinic, 1940 116th Avenue NE, Bellevue, WA 98004, USA. Washingtonwound@lycos.com When the Association for Advanced Wound Care Quality of Care Task Force members determined there was no unanimously accepted definition of quality as it relates to wound care, they: 1) identified relevant components of quality wound care, and 2) created a framework of quality wound care indicators to enable the creation or assessment of wound care delivery systems. The framework is an innovative conceptual model that serves as a basis for the Association strategies to facilitate high quality wound care for patients/clients across the continuum of care and recognizes the role of the supporting systems necessary to provide wound care services. It uses the Institute of Medicine's Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century to define quality systems for wound care and includes safety and effectiveness coupled with the delivery of timely, efficient, equitable, collaborative, patient-centered care. This framework can be utilized during clinical, managerial, or regulatory review of wound care service delivery. PMID: 17146119 [Indexed for MEDLINE]
