Wound research program

We undertake research and provide education about chronic wound treatment and management as well as prevention. Our research program includes studies to determine the health and healing needs of people with chronic wounds. We have expertise in venous leg ulcers or mixed aetiology ulcers and pressure injury in community, primary care and hospital settings. Our aim is to enable people with chronic wounds to experience the best possible quality of life through research, critical evaluation of available evidence-based information and community engagement and education.



ASPiVLU (ASPirin in Venous Leg Ulcer healing) is a clinical trial to determine whether daily aspirin improves healing in adults with venous leg ulcer.

Led by Dr Carolina Weller from Monash University the primary trial outcome is the time to complete healing of venous leg ulcer at or before 12 weeks of treatment.
