The Webinar Vet partners with Essity to deliver a sponsored webinar series on wound care for small animal vets and nurses

The first webinar focusing on small animal wound care will be taking place on Tuesday 27 October

The Webinar Vet have partnered with Essity to deliver a free CPD sponsored webinar series addressing Wound Biofilm and Exudate Management in Small Animal Wound Care for small animal vets and nurses. The first webinar focusing on Small Animal Wound Care will be taking place on Tuesday 27 October 2020, at 8pm.

Wound management can present a variety of challenges for the whole veterinary team, with various reasons for why a wound may not progress through the normal stages of healing. Biofilms are established as a serious complication in human health care, leading to chronic wounds, but how concerned should we be about biofilms in veterinary practice? This webinar presented by Amanda Curtis and Elisa Best aims to discuss how these complex colonies of bacteria can lead to delays in wound healing and how we can effectively manage and prevent biofilms.

The webinar also explains what exudate is, the benefits of exudate, causes of excessive exudate and what impact this has on the wound and how to manage exudate effectively.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what a biofilm is and how they affect the wound healing process
  • How to effectively manage wound biofilms
  • The prevention of biofilms.
  • Exudate explained
  • Benefits of exudate
  • Negative impact of exudate on wounds
  • Causes of excessive exudate in small animal wounds
  • Managing exudate

Speaking about the partnership, Charlotte Wood, National Key Account Manager at Essity said:

“Essity are very happy to be working with The Webinar Vet to offer wound care education. We will be delivering two webinars, the first being Wound Biofilm and Exudate Management in Small Animal Wound Care. We hope you enjoy the webinars.

“Essity, best known in the veterinary market for key brands such as Soffban and Tensoplast, is excited to introduce the Advanced Wound Care range through our Cutimed and Leukomed product portfolios.”

Claire Wolfenden, VN and Chief Commercial Officer at The Webinar Vet added:

“We are thrilled to be working alongside the team at Essity in what will promise to be a very informative and in depth two-part series.

“Advances in wound care, knowledge, protocols and products are pivotal areas of veterinary medicine for the first opinion and referral practice and we welcome Essity for bringing these webinars to our profession.

“I am sure we all have cases whether they be trauma, de-gloving wounds, surgical resection wounds, that require intense care and these webinars will offer a crucial update to all dealing with these difficult cases.

“Thank you to Essity, I am looking forward to both evenings.”
