It requires specific wound care techniques that not only facilitate the healing process but also minimize the infection and other healing barriers. This study was aimed to identify the effect of wound care using Robusta coffee powders on diabetic ulcer healing. This quasi experiment with the Pretest-Posttest Control Group Design study involved 32 patients with diabetic foot ulcer who consecutively recruited from Sekarwangi Hospital in Sukabumi – West Java. Patients who met the criteria; GDS 70–250 mg/dl and never received wound care using Robusta Coffee Powder were equally divided into two groups (intervention group received wound care using Robusta Coffee powders and cleaned every two days, while the control group received daily conventional wound care). Wound healing process was measured using BatesJensen Wound Assessment Tool (BWAT) twice; pretest (week 0) and posttest (week 2nd). Data were analyzed using dependent and independent t-test. The results suggested there was no significant different of respondents’ characteristics between both groups. The result showed that mean of posttest scores, either in intervention group or control group were significantly lower (p=0.000) than the mean of pretest scores. Additionally, the different score between posttest and pretest in the intervention group (16.25+4.768) was significantly higher (p=0.000) than that in the control group (6.25+3.444). These findings indicated that the effect of wound care using Robusta Coffee powders on diabetic ulcer healing process is more evident than the conventional dressing. It is important for the hospital staffs to consider wound care using Robusta Coffee powders as a strategy in managing diabetic ulcer Keywords: BWAT Scores, diabetic ulcer, gangrene, Robusta Coffee, wound healing.|
