BEASKOETXEA GOMEZ, Paz et al. Actual situation about acute and chronic wounds in Spain: ATENEA study. Gerokomos [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.1, pp.27-31. ISSN 1134-928X.

Wounds are a health problem that affects a wide population of all ages and that require different interventions to ensure optimal care of patients who have them. Cross-sectional survey of national scope done by professional nurses, and carried out during the period September 2011-January 2012. Professionals who answered to the survey are nurses who work in hospitals, primary care centers or other centers. The survey, that includes a total of 26 items, presents three main sections: 1. Social demographic data and personal details; 2. Training received regarding wound treatment; 3. Questions related to management in wound care. This article presents the results for paragraphs 1 and 2. A total of 405 professionals participated in the survey, and 340 completed the questionnaire for the evaluation. The different results obtained for each of the parameters are listed in the article. In future studies, it would be interesting to develop programs that enable us to assess the effectiveness of the different training modes in the healthcare environment.
