Wound-care Experts / FDA--Clinical Endpoints Project (WEF-CEP)

A collaborative effort with the FDA to determine scientifically rigorous, yet achievable clinical endpoints to facilitate device and new drug development activities to help heal difficult wounds.

 WEF-CEP Patient Survey is the next step in the Wound-care Experts/FDA-Clinical Endpoints Project (WEF-CEP)

What do our patients think about these endpoints? To add the patient voice regarding wound care and clinical trial outcomes that are important to them, we have developed a survey that will allow us to rank a series of endpoints that are currently in the literature. In addition, patients may add their own ideas. Your patients can access the survey directly by going to http://woundheal.org/forms/WEFCEP/. This website takes the patient to a consent form, which once approved begins the survey. The survey is anonymous and completely voluntary. 

  • If your patient does not have internet access but would like to participate, we ask that you provide a paper copy of the survey. This can be printed from the link after consent is obtained.

  • The completed survey can be returned by either you or the patient to:The AAWC
