The session is aimed at all healthcare practitioners to explore and enable the attendee to understand the elements of dressing selection in order to assess and plan treatment to maximise patient outcomes. 


The session will explore:

  • Understanding the role of dressings and cleansing solutions in wound care
  • Recognising and accessing  the local Wound Care Formulary
  • Basic rules of ordering, storing and disposal of products
  • Understanding the different groups of dressings, how to use them and why
  • Accessing resources and how to gain more learning and understanding of dressings
  • Discussion of patient scenarios and gallery
  • A Q and A part - individual queries where possible and advice for practical solutions


This session will provide the learner with increased confidence and skills necessary to understand dressing selection in order. It will, however, not deem a learner 'competent'. The trainer will provide help on how to progress through a generic ‘competency’ framework, and the attendee should seek help from their local Tissue Viability team to access any local policies, documents and tools to support the learning that may be available.

A modified pdf of the presentation plus resources/links will be available on the website after the event.

Please note this session will NOT be recorded
