Skip to 0 minutes and 6 secondsHello, and thank you for completing week two of the antimicrobial stewardship and wound management programme. This week, we've introduced terminologies associated wound infection, assessed factors associated with increased risk of wound infection, and the symptoms you may observe in clinical practice. We've also discussed biofilms and how their presence in wounds can impede wound healing. Fowler reviewed various technologies and techniques associated with control and prevention of wound infection. We hope you've enjoyed this learning week, and we're looking forward to the third week. In week three, we'll be discussing antimicrobial stewardship implementation techniques and evaluating preventative strategies.

Skip to 0 minutes and 47 secondsWe'll also be presenting case studies, which should help you get a better understanding of quality improvement programmes and antimicrobial stewardship and how to link to the theory into clinical practice. We look forward to seeing you in week three and sharing some more knowledge with you.

End of week 2

In this video, Professor Karen Ousey summarises week 2.

This week, we have introduced the terminologies associated with wound infection, assessed factors associated with increased risk of wound infection, and the symptoms observed. We have also discussed biofilms and how their presence in wounds can decelerate wound healing. Finally, we reviewed various techniques associated with control and prevention of wound infection.

Now that you have understood what a wound infection is and have learnt how to identify, diagnose, manage, and prevent it, the time has come to apply it into your own clinical practice. You may find the articles in the see also section quite useful.

We hope that you have enjoyed the learning this week and that you are looking forward to week 3. We will discuss techniques to help the implementation of an antimicrobial stewardship programme and some interesting case studies next week. Don’t forget to share your thoughts on this week in the comments section below.
