What can you expect
- Brief content on biofilms and their role in delayed wound healing, plus current antibiofilm strategies within standard of care.
- Introduction to electroceutical wound care: scientific content on its mode of action, antibiofilm properties and ability to stimulate granulation tissue formation and epithelialisation.
- Overview of the scientific evidence.
Diabetic foot ulcers can be extremely challenging to treat and are associated with a high morbidity and mortality. A recent large randomised controlled trial (RCT), found that a single application of a fetal bovine acellular dermal matrix in combination with standard of care (SOC) is a faster and more effective treatment for these ulcers than SOC alone.
The development of Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has diminished the effectiveness of many antimicrobials used to prevent and/or treat wound infection. In order to help address AMR, there have been the development of Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) programmes. These have been designed to educate healthcare workers and control the prescribing of antibiotics and targeting of other antimicrobials and hence reduce the likelihood of AMR.

El propósito del siguiente webinar será proponer un plan de descontaminación de heridas con un mensaje asociado a una rutina habitual esperada. Es un concepto que apoya una práctica meticulosa que aborde las barreras para la cicatrización y el uso adecuado de tecnologías antimicrobianas y antibiofilm.
