Wound Warriors: AMS and the prevention and management of wound infection

Session outline

By 2050, AMR is predicted to be responsible for 10 million annual deaths worldwide. In order to prevent the spread of antimicrobial resistant bacteria there needs to be a significant decrease in antibiotic use in wound care.

While the World Health Organisation is addressing AMR with a Global Action Plan, there is a lot of room to contribute to the prevention of AMR in the wound care sector. To be truly effective against AMR, action must be taken at every level of wound care, from wound specialists to wound nurses.

In this lunchtime session, we will discuss how appropriate wound care for infection prevention and management can play a powerful role in the fight against AMR. Our expert speakers will share valuable insights and evidence-based recommendations from a clinical and product perspective.

Topics covered:

  • The importance of Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS)
  • Wound infection prevention and management
  • Sorbact Technology and how it can support an AMS strategy
  • Sorbact case studies

Join the session and learn more about becoming a Wound Warrior and joining the fight against antimicrobial resistance.
