The reality of COVID-19 / Let’s Return to Healing
This event highlighted the impact of COVID-19 and how healthcare professionals, patients and health services have changed in the last year. This has included a deterioration in wounds and a negative impact on healing rates; the greater burden of unhealed wounds causing a great impact on both patients and HCPs.
The panel discussed how the importance of returning patients to healing has never been greater, and how we can do this while minimising risk and maximising outcomes with effective, simple, reliable healing solutions.
Our expert panel went on to demonstrate the importance of the three steps to Return to Healing:
