Wound infection can lead to protracted wound healing, multiple health service visits and increased hospital admission duration. This comes at significant economic cost and negatively impacts quality of life outcomes for the patient with a wound and their family. Accurate and timely identification of the signs and symptoms of wound infection is critical to achieving effective management of wound infection. This Made Easy will introduce the new edition of Wound Infection in Clinical Practice (International Wound Infection Institute [IWII], 2022) and provide an overall view of prevention and management of wound infection from identification and assessment to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antimicrobial stewardship (AMS).
