Development of Canadian Best Practice Recommendations for the Topical Management of Malignant Cutaneous Wounds

Malignant Cutaneous Wounds pose unique challenges, and are becoming more common with improved cancer survival rates. To meet this need a task force comprised of members of Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence Canada (NSWOCC) and CPCNA developed these recommendations.

Event Details

Malignant cutaneous wounds pose unique challenges in patient care, requiring specialized attention to alleviate local symptoms and enhance the overall quality of life. As the prevalence of these wounds continues to rise with improving cancer survival rates, it becomes imperative to establish comprehensive best practice recommendations for their topical management.

To meet this need, a task force was drawn from across Canada, comprised of members of Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence Canada (NSWOCC) and the Canadian Palliative Care Nursing Association (CPCNA). This project aimed to synthesize current evidence, expert insights, and patient-centred perspectives to provide a robust framework for health care professionals caring for individuals with malignant cutaneous wounds. These recommendations support clinicians in managing malignant cutaneous wounds, and the use of the recommendations is at the clinician's discretion.
