The outcome measure is wound healing process score based onBates-Jansen wound assessment while the cost measured is wound care material cost. An independent t testwith 95% confidence interval was performed to evaluate the difference of healing process and cost effectivitybetween modern and conventional dressing. The result showed a significant differences of healing processscore (p=0,002) and cost effectivity (p=0,031) between modern and conventional dressing application fordiabetic wound. It can be concluded that the application of modern dressing significantly improve the healingprocess in diabetic wound but with higher treatment cost.
