  2. To identify local wound care uncertainties, priorities and current standards of care, and to use these to develop and commence delivery of a programme of community-based, world-leading wound research studies
  3. To support the implementation of wound care evidence into clinical practice and health service delivery
  4. To study the processes associated with the implementation of wound care research evidence.
