Wound Quality of Life 

Current healthcare reform is focused on a patient centered approach to care. Patient reported outcomes create a valid way to measure treatment effectiveness. Quality of life covers many patient feelings such as embarrassment, low body image, depression, fear, and loss of interest in normal daily activities. The Institute for Health Services Research in Dermatology and Nursing in Hamburg, Germany, developed the Wound Quality of Life Index (wQoL). Translated into English and vaildated, the wQoL is a 17 question tool specific to wound care. CMS accepted the wQoL as a quality measure for PQRS through the US Wound Registry.

Moving forward, wQoL needs to go hand-in-hand with treatment options as a way to improve patient well-being.

Benefits of Participation:

  • Access to quality reporting through PQRS
  • Reduces workload for clinicians
  • Improved patient satisfaction
  • Patient specific quality of care
