The growing risk of antimicrobial resistance – the new pandemic – has identified the importance of accurate wound assessment and the ability to prevent or manage wound infections in a timely and effective manner. This session will present and explore the updated International Wound Infection Institute’s (IWII) 2022 consensus document. All chapters have been updated supported by the inclusion of clear definitions developed through an international Delphi process. The Wound Infection Continuum has been updated with the addition of a Wound Infection Continuum complete with a management guide allowing the user to plan a holistic approach to managing wound infection. Antimicrobial stewardship is discussed throughout the document with updated research and evidence presented exploring topical antimicrobial therapy.
