Clinical Challenges and Therapeutic Updates in Wound Exudate

Webcast broadcast on Thursday 30th May 2019

The first Wounds International webcast of 2019 has now aired. You will find all information relating to this webcast and the Consensus Document discussed throughout the webcast here.

The first Wounds International webcast of 2019, chaired by Professor Marco Romanelli, focused on the recommendations from the new WUWHS consensus document “Wound exudate: effective assessment and management”.

Exudate plays a key role in wound healing. However, exudate can delay healing when in the wrong amount, place, or composition. Effective assessment and management of exudate is, therefore, key to ensuring timely wound healing without complications.

LEARNING POINTS:

This webcast gave insight into:

  • The role of exudate In wound healing and non-healing
  • The effective assessment and management of exudate to prevent exudate-related complications
  • The appropriate use of dressings and devices in exudate management
