The Australian health system provides treatment of wounds, including wound management to everyone. We can only fund wound and pressure care supports if they are related to your disability.
We may fund these supports if your disability means you can’t monitor or manage your wound or pressure care on your own. Or if your wounds are caused by your disability.
Wound and pressure care supports can include funding to help develop and carry out a wound and pressure care plan.
It can include equipment to prevent pressure areas or wounds occurring or products to help manage wounds like bandages. We may also fund support workers and their training to help you manage your wounds if you can’t do this on your own.
