About This Webinar

Cellulitis is commonly misdiagnosed. With the growing risk of antimicrobial resistance, we need to ensure that patients are treated responsibility and accurately. The first session with explore the relationship between infection and inflammation, detailing the chemical and clinical differences. It will also provide information about other causes of red legs, hoping to build clinical confidence and accuracy of diagnosis.


The Safe Innovative Debridement model has been developed for wound care associates and debriding practitioners alike, providing a safe and effective tool for the initial assessment of wounds and subsequent practice of debridement techniques. This session will introduce the basic principles of SID as a hands-on interactive tool for training and education. It will be discussed how SID was founded, progressions that have been made with the model and where the research currently stands will be evidenced, and future innovations for our safe innovative debridement model will also be highlighted.
