Queen D (2013) Wound communities become a reality. Int Wound J 10(5): 487
Douglas Queen, editor of the International Wound Journal, flags up the importance of social media with the introduction of two new private interactive communities, The Welsh Wound Community and the Diabetic Foot Canada Community (www.welshwoundcommunity.com and www.diabeticfootcomunity.ca).
These private networks allow members to discuss and rank information posted on the site, as well as offering peer-to-peer education.
Douglas Queen explains that such resources will help to ensure international ‘health equality’, while also offering tailored content for specific populations.
