Following publication of this article [1], it has come to our attention that the incorrect version of the manuscript was published. In this incorrect version, the title of the article has been updated to “Education in wound care: Curricula for doctors and nurses, and experiences from the German wound healing society ICW”. The author affiliations in the Frontmatter were also captured incorrectly as “1Gemeinschaftspraxis Bramfeld, Bramfelder Chaussee 200, Hamburg 22177, Germany. 2Akademische Lehr—und Forschungspraxis, der Universität Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany” however, instead should only be “1Gemeinschaftspraxis Bramfeld, Bramfelder Chaussee 200, Hamburg 22177, Germany”. Furthermore, the abbreviations and author’s information was captured incorrectly, and references section was missed in the article, which should have included the following:


DFS, Diabetic foot syndrome; ICW, Initiative Chronische Wunden; TÜV, Technischer Überwachungsverein
