Journal of Wound Care covers

What we do

JWC is essential reading for wound care professionals who are serious about providing the best possible support for the people in their care, and those who want to keep on top of the latest thinking and research.

JWC is much more than a journal. We provide the best wound-care resources to international markets through our international supplements and sister publications. In addition, we publish a wealth of knowledge through a number of medical education projects, from case-series supplements and guides to clinical evaluations, webinars and more.

What’s more, JWC hosts events and awards that bring wound care communities together.
