Virtual Symposium “Wound Balance – a Multifunctional Approach” at the LINK Wound Balance Congress on 16th Oct. 2023

Session Overview

The concept of ‘wound balance’ is multifactorial, encompassing interconnecting issues related to the wound healing process and clinical practice. The wound balance concept aims to integrate various critical parameters which offer continuity, individualised care and supports clinical decision-making, to place the patient at the centre of all care.

The wound balance approach aims to provide clinicians with the information to understand the science of wound healing, in addition to the skills in how to communicate this effectively with patients to help them to get the best out of their treatments and, ultimately, achieve good clinical outcomes.

To enhance understanding and application of the wound balance concept, there is a CPD certified e-learning module available. By completing this module, clinicians can significantly improve their knowledge about wound balance and the achievement of wound healing in their clinical practice.

Watch the international experts as they explain the benefits of the wound balance concept and applying it into clinical practice.
