Selecting the ideal dressings that work for you, your patients, and your patients’ wounds can be overwhelming. There are thousands of dressings available, each with different technologies designed to address different aspects of wound healing. With such volume and variety, it is crucial to take a step back and think about why we choose our dressings.

In this session, the speakers will explore factors to consider when choosing dressings, including what you need as a clinician, what your patients need, and what the wound needs. The speakers will also discuss a simple, creative dressing solution that actively addresses these needs and adapts to changing wound characteristics to give you complete control of your patients' wounds.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most serious health threats of the 21st century, with a prediction of 10 million excess deaths each year globally by 2050, exceeding deaths caused by cancer.

Antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) is one of a range of tools that can be used effectively to reduce AMR in wound management while ensuring the appropriate assessment and management of infected wound types. The development, education, and integration of AMS champions into health care areas should be embraced, with AMS being the responsibility of all multidisciplinary team members.

By the end of this session participants will:

  • Be aware of the global threat of AMR
  • Be able to define AMS
  • Be able to identify an infected wound effectively
  • Understand how to choose an antimicrobial wound dressing
  • Be aware of strategies that can be used to implement AMS programs into clinical practice
