Joint EWMA/BSAC session: Antimicrobial Stewardship in Wound Management

Held as part of the EWMA 2018 Conference.

Title: Antimicrobial Stewardship in Wound Management. Promoting non-antibiotic antimicrobial technologies in wound care

Objectives:
In this session you will learn about a new review paper on the use of topical antibiotics to prevent SSIs. Data was collected among the members of the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy and EWMA and shows little consensus about the appropriate use. Also, we will look into the use of negative pressure wound therapy with instillation (NPWTi) as a means to prevent or treat infection. Finally, Rose Cooper will share her thoughts on why we should work towards a stewardship strategy  for the use of biocides in in wound management.
