Compassionate wound care: An integrated intervention for people who self-injure

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This article discusses how an integrated physical, psychological and social approach to wound care can help improve the quality of life for people who self-injure. The health professional should demonstrate compassion while teaching the person who self-injures how to provide their own wound care. Compassionate care may help the patient improve their self-compassion and reduce shame associated with this coping strategy, which may in turn avoid exacerbating self-harm when seeking healthcare.
