Introduction

The term “advanced dressing” can include a wide variety of dressing categories. The early “advanced” dressings were designed to optimise the wound environment, require less frequent dressing changes, and allow the patient’s own innate healing processes to occur. In more recent years, “advanced” dressings have expanded to include antimicrobial dressings, and dressings that interact with the wound itself to effectively change the environment of the wound to promote healing.

This course, which follows the Introduction to Dressing Selection for Burn Wound Injuries, reviews the most frequently investigated and evidence-supported advanced dressings for burn wound injuries, including negative pressure wound therapy devices.

Aims

This course aims to introduce the wound care professional to commonly used advanced wound dressings in burn wound injury care.
