FUENTES AGUNDEZ, Adrián et al. Impact of a training intervention in students on two acronyms for the evaluation of chronic wounds. Gerokomos [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.2, pp.87-92. ISSN 1134-928X.


chronic wounds represent a health problem in all areas, from the quality of life of patients who suffer them to the health care they generate. Training interventions on professionals have proven to be beneficial and the existing evidence on the approach to chronic wounds requires acronyms that help or guide health professionals in their work.


to evaluate the impact of a training intervention in preparation of the wound bed (PLH) of wounds difficult to heal by the acronyms TIME and DOMINATE in nursing students.


quasi-experimental study with pre-test design through a training intervention and ad hoc test performed on 427 students and data analysis with SPSS22.0 using the McNemar test.


in 11 of the questions, more than 50% of variance between pre and post test responses was exceeded. In 83.6% of the cases, DOMINATE was the acronym chosen to perform an integral approach to the lesion.


the formation in chronic wound in the curricula of the universities is one of the aspects that remains uncovered or segmented in subjects in the academic formation. The knowledge and use of acronyms serves as a simple, applicable and logical mechanism to develop the concept of fundamental PLH in a correct and ordered cicatricial process as the final objective of the nursing care plan.
