This webinar will review the processes of wound healing with a practical rather than academic emphasis, helping to then determine what that wound needs in order to facilitate healing. There will be a focus on acute traumatic wound management initially and then how dressings (including negative pressure wound therapy devices) can be used effectively, using worked case examples for illustration. Bite wounds will be reviews as particularly challenging multifactorial problems and there will be consideration of unusual causes of wounds that should be recognised quickly to improve treatment success. It’s a subject that’s been split in half because I just got excited and couldn’t stop talking. Enjoy!
