Implementing Wound Hygiene and overcoming the biofilm barrier: a protocol for success demonstrated by real-world, global evidence.

Collaboration is key: Wound Hygiene developed by global wound care experts, is a value-based protocol-of-care to combat a key barrier to healing; biofilm. The Symposium will address ‘what is biofilm’ & ‘how does biofilm behave’ in a wound environment, supported by scientific and clinical real-world evidence through the Wound Hygiene Challenge, to demonstrate the impact of positive patient outcomes.

Come join us in South Gallery 13-14, Wednesday 1st May at 4pm (GMT)

We're thrilled to be joined by Dr Daniel Metcalf, R&D Director for Advanced Wound Care at Convatec and Kate Moran, a Tissue Viability Nurse in the Western Health & Social Care Trust. You can find out more about them below.
