A reliability study of wound assessment tools for diabetic patients in Indonesia

9 May 2016

<p>Wound assessment tools specifically for diabetic foot wounds are less well developed than those for wounds such as pressure ulcers. The aim of this study was to evaluate the inter-rater reliability of a new wound assessment tool developed for diabetic foot wounds in Indonesia. The results showed that the inter-rater reliability of the MUNGS (maceration, undermining/tunnelling, necrotic tissue, granulation, signs or symptoms) tool was higher than that of a photographic wound assessment tool. The MUNGS tool may help monitor the progression of chronic wounds, especially among people with diabetes. </p>
