Persistent (chronic) wound-related pain is a common experience that requires appropriate assessment and treatment. It is no longer adequate for health care professionals to concentrate on the acute (temporary) pain during dressing change alone. The study provides useful recommendations and statements for assessing and managing total wound-related pain for patients, health care professionals and other policymakers. The recommendations have been developed with the involvement of an interprofessional panel of health care professionals from around the world.
