In short Gabi Weigold, nurse, specialist wound therapist, and certified wound manager has realized the following in more than 20 years’ practical experience: many patients who are diagnosed with venous leg ulcers do not start treatment early enough. They also know very little about the consequences of their condition. The Managing Director of the “Wundmanagement Gabi Weigold” practice in Döhlau close to Hof therefore advocates:
- better education and sharing of basic knowledge about the causes of ulcers at all levels, from healthcare providers to patients.
- a wide range of training, information, and prevention options, just like those she has established herself in her educational institute.
- a high level of compliance in patients who understand that, following decongestion and wound healing, medical compression stockings will be daily companions from now on.
