Wound Dressing Product Selection: A Holistic, Interprofessional Patient-Centered Approach

Wound Dressing Product Selection-A Holistic, Interprofessional Patient-Centered Approach
 

By Diane L. Krasner PhD, RN, CWCN, CWS, MAPWCA, FAAN; R. Gary Sibbald BSc, MD, FRCPC (Med, Derm), MACP, FAAD, MEd, MAPWCA; Kevin Y. Woo BSc, MSc, PhD, RN, GNC(C), ACNP, FAPWCA 

Many wound care clinicians remember the “good old days” when wound dressing product selection simply involved choosing between a handful of products that were essentially variations on the same theme.

Fast forward to the 21st century and wound care clinicians are confronted with a totally different situation: hundreds of products, scientific rationale for moist interactive wound dressings and an emerging evidence-base for wound dressing product selection.

In this white paper, you will learn how to approach the wound dressing product selection process with three basic principles:

Holistic perspectives
Interprofessional considerations
Patient-centered concerns

This paper is generally written for health care professionals and purchasing directors with an interest in product solutions.
