Vascular surgery - leg ulcer assessment (LUPA 2)

This page contains downloadable leg ulcer assessment forms for community nurses.

Leg ulcer pathway acceleration 2 (LUPA) is the expansion of the successful LUPA protocol, a new and improved clinical pathway to heal venous leg ulcers (VLU). The pathway was developed by consultants, nurses, and researchers at St. Thomas’ Hospital, and incorporates the latest clinical evidence for best management of VLUs.

LUPA 2 will provide VLU patients with a clear diagnosis, evidence-backed treatment plans, and coordinated follow-ups to heal wounds, decrease pain, and decrease patient dependency on healthcare visits to help patients live normal, more enjoyable daily lives.
