Webinar Description:
Please note: This session does not offer continuing education credit.

Since a global panel of wound care experts published the first consensus document on Wound Hygiene in March 2020, there has been a flurry of activity in support of this recently established concept in proactive wound healing.

The consensus has been bolstered by educational webinars, competency-based skills training, development of international Wound Hygiene ambassadors, and a survey of 1478 respondents published in July 2021. In addition, a global case study supplement was published in January 2022 that features a range of wound types and underlying conditions and demonstrates the improvements in wound-healing progress that can be achieved when practicing this simple four-step protocol of care. Wound Hygiene has gained its own identity and it is now an antibiofilm approach that is increasingly used in wound care all over the world.

This session will provide insights and tools to make a difference in your wound care practice. A capabilities framework will be introduced to support your professional development. Clinical outcomes and the impact of Wound Hygiene will be discussed
