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 o¨ germs, so we should apply basic hygiene to wounds.
