Why is it important to have currant relevant Canadian data? In order to allocate health-care dollars wisely, decision makers need to understand the problem. We know wounds are a significant health issue in Canada, but there is currently not enough published Canadian information that accurately provides the type and depth of information necessary for making sound, patient-focused decisions. To help fill this gap, the Wounds Canada Foundation will be offering research grants. If you are interested in applying for a research grant, contact us.
