Comfeel Literary Awards 2010

The comfeel literary awards are designed to encourage and reward authors who publish their wound care research and clinical experiences in Wound Practice & Research. There are three categories: original research articles, case presentations and reviews and the 2010 winners were announced at the recent AWMA AGM in Brisbane Feb 2010. This year as there was only 1 case study submitted, the editorial board decided to award two original research prizes.

The winner of the first best research article was
