Topic: Wound Hygiene

Original presented at WoundCon Summer 2021. Hard-to-heal wounds continue to challenge wound clinicians across the continuum of care, and mounting evidence points to biofilm being a culprit. Join us as Richelle Roethler, FNP, CWCN-AP discusses the rationale for the Wound Hygiene approach to hard-to-heal wounds and details the steps of the protocol, with enhanced clinical cases of the Wound Hygiene protocol in practice.

Topic: Wound Hygiene

The concept of wound hygiene arose during an expert advisory board meeting held in early 2019. The panel discussed ways of embedding real change into generalist practice. Hence, it devised the concept of wound hygiene, which is based on the premise that, just as we follow basic hygiene everyday by washing our hands, brushing our teeth and showering to keep clean and ward off germs, so we should apply basic hygiene to wounds.
