Industry-Supported Dinner Symposium (Non-Accredited/Non-Approved for CECH): New Therapy Recommendations for the Advanced Treatment of Complex Wounds in the Acute and Post Acute Setting

Saturday, November 3
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: Florentine

Faculty: Saeed Chowdhry, MD & Michael Desvigne, MD, CWC, FACS

Abstract:
The prevalence of acute and chronic wounds needing treatment is increasing across
the globe. Similarly, the annual global wound care product expenditures are projected
to rise. To reduce healthcare system costs, the timely transfer of patients from acute
care inpatient settings to less expensive post-acute care settings is critical. The
increase in wound prevalence means that more patients with wounds and wound
treatment products are being transferred through care settings than ever before. While
the goals of therapy may be the same in both settings, wound care therapies and
dressings differ in availability and appropriateness for each setting. Negative pressure
wound therapy (NPWT) modalities and oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC)/collagen
(C)/Silver-ORC dressings are available in both inpatient and outpatient care settings
and (to-date) lack comprehensive information regarding best practices in transitioning
use of these therapies between various care settings. To help guide the transition of wound care patients, a panel meeting of specialists experienced in inpatient as well as
outpatient care was convened to provide literature- and experience-based
recommendations in transitioning wound care patients between various care settings
and help optimize the use of NPWT or ORC/C/Silver-ORC dressings in inpatient versus outpatient settings.
