Wound infection – what is new – the IWII updated guidance and continuum
The global population is ageing and as such individuals are at risk of compromised skin integrity. There are challenges and opportunities for health care professionals when attempting to manage skin integrity within a landscape where there are limited resources, restrictions on accessing education and a myriad of terms that attempt to identify damage to skin…
Managing the complicated vascular wound & Pain management in complex wounds
What makes a wound complicated? Any non-healing wound can be described as complicated, but some are more complicated than others! Complicated wounds are usually found on patients with complex medical problems. Often complicated wound aetiology is multifactorial, but outcomes are significantly worse with underlying vascular disease. Medical optimisation and risk factor modification is required to treat the rest of the individual too.
Managing infection and sepsis in burn injuries
The biggest barrier to effective wound care in South Africa is its non-recognition as a specialty qualification by the regulatory body (South African Nursing Council). Resultantly, the general public is not aware that they have the right to access quality, cost effective and specialised care.

Bovine dermal scaffolds
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.
Skin substitutes: efficacy, application and treatment
Skin substitutes come in wide range of categories. This, combined with their high cost and reimbursement requirements, can make selection challenging. Clinicians need to determine which skin substitute(a) in the range available are clinically effective and cost-effective for each individual patient’s needs.

Este webinar describirá las clasificaciones necesarias para la atención del abdomen complicado. Se detallará, además, qué hacer en cada uno de los posibles escenarios. Los participantes del webinar recibirán material complementario (videos y tutoriales online) para continuar explorando esta área, incluyendo la técnica de condón de Rivera.
La importancia de los limpiadores en la correcta preparación del lecho de la herida
La correcta preparación del lecho de la herida es un proceso fundamental en el manejo avanzado de todo tipo de heridas, independiente de su origen y clasificación. La limpieza es, por ende, un paso clave en este procedimiento. En los últimos años, ha habido una evolución importante en relación con las soluciones utilizadas en la limpieza de heridas.
Higiene de la herida: del concepto a la práctica
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.
