The Academy of Physicians in Wound Healing (APWH) is an organisation that provides information and support in three subject areas: clinical and operations-focused education, compensation advocacy, and legislative action on healthcare issues. Additionally, the organisation provides this information specifically to providers that are responsible for diagnosis and management of patient care.
