Philosophy of wound bed preparation in clinical practice

Flanagan M (2003) Philosophy of wound bed preparation in clinical practice Smith & Nephew Medical Ltd: 1-34

 

Abstract

Throughout the last decade new and innovative technologies, such as topically applied growth factors and bio-engineered skin products, have been at the forefront of the drive to treat chronic non-healing wounds. Unfortunately, despite these exciting and technologically advanced therapies, there remains in clinical practice a general lack of knowledge about strategies required to optimise wound healing. It remains critically important that clinicians provide effective wound care, and ensure that appropriate wound bed preparation is undertaken, in order to derive the maximum benefit from today's advanced wound care products.
