Feb 2020- ConvaTec Group Plc., a global medical products and technologies company, welcomes the publication of an international expert panel consensus addressing the challenge of biofilm to improve outcomes in hard-to-heal wounds. ConvaTec brought together an international group of leading wound care practitioners who devised the concept of Wound Hygiene; a simple 4-step regime which is based on the premise that just as we follow basic, essential, repetitive hygiene activities every day by washing our hands, brushing our teeth and showering, so should we apply basic hygiene to wounds.2 Wound Hygiene has now been fully described as a core, non-negotiable component of wound care that comprises cleansing of the wound and periwound, wound debridement, refashioning of the wound edges and application of an antimicrobial dressing; and can be safely undertaken by both specialist and generalist healthcare practitioners in any setting.
