    Wound assessment is a routine component of caring for patients with any type of wound. To date, there is little agreement about how assessment is carried out and recorded and several published audits have identified that in many instances it is done inconsistently. A project group met to develop and agree a new wound assessment tool which, it is suggested, may form the basis for agreeing a minimum dataset. The layout of the form is specifically designed to facilitate ease of use in combination with digital pen technology, making it quick and simple to both input and audit data.
