理事長的話[A Word from the Director]
Dear friends from the field of professional wound care,
感謝各位今天熱情參與。經數月籌劃與大家熱烈提供意見，我要鄭重宣布我們台灣傷口照護學會(Taiwan society for Wound care，簡稱TSWC)正式成立。
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of your enthusiastic involvement in this meaningful endeavor. After several months of collective planning and discussion, I announce that the Taiwan Society for Wound Care is now formally established.
我身為籌備會主要發起人，感謝所有發起人草創之初篳路藍縷，經過二次籌備會義召開(第1次台北榮總105-12-3，第2 次高醫大附院106-1-21)，大家達成共識及修訂本會章程草案，在廣召會員下，短段一個多月已有超過350 位會員報名入會，對於一個新的學會，是莫名的鼓勵。
As the primary founder of the preparatory committee, I wish to thank the other cofounders for all the invested time and effort in establishing this society. After two preparatory meetings (the first meeting was held at the Veterans General Hospital in Taipei on 12/3/2016; the second meeting was held at Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital on 1/21/2016), everyone came to a consensus, especially on the drafting of the society’s constitutions. After just a little over a month, the Society expanded up to more than 350 members, which was definitely encouraging.
The quality of medical care in Taiwan is well recognized. Professional wound care is bound to be a future trend of Taiwanese medicine. Through the collaboration of a variety of medical professionals, an interactive platform such as TSWC can be constructed to facilitate international interaction and sharing of experience and ideas, which further positions Taiwan at the forefront of the international medical community by making the accomplishments of Taiwanese medical care known to the rest of the world.
The primary objectives of TSWC To integrate all medical professionals from all disciplines within the country, including physicians, nurses, nutritionists, physical therapists, diabetes educators, social workers, researchers and other relevant medical providers, to efficiently use and allocate medical resources, and to promote the development of wound care research so as to enhance the overall national quality of wound care and achieve a more well-rounded patient care.
