Wound Management – A Simple Solution to Complex Problems?

There are some amazing innovations when it comes to wound management and dressing technologies.

Some dressings are now designed to be left on for a day, two days, sometimes up to a week.

But do they work for our elderly care recipients?

Today we’re joined by Jan Rice. Jan is the Director of WoundCare Services, and is on the Board of Wounds Australia.

In this episode we discuss:
– Some of the recent innovations in wound management
– How traditional dressings may be more effective, and
– Why training and the fundamentals of wound management are more important (and more cost effective).
