The traditional goal of wound care is to heal or prepare for surgical closure, but techniques and procedures used to “heal” a wound can be painful or uncomfortable and very costly. It is inappropriate to ignore wounds or declare them untreatable in patients at the end of life. Palliative wound care requires a different mindset than traditional wound care, yet is based on the same fundamental scientific principles. The concept of palliation for chronic wounds is a relatively new concept within the past ten years. Palliation recognizes and accepts non-healing endpoints as appropriate care and uses non-healing strategies to comfort patients and improve quality of life. This presentation provides a framework for understanding and providing palliative care for wounds at the end of life.
