Biofilms: Is your Strategy Working? Get it Right from the Start.


Description

Biofilms have become a topic of increased awareness and concern for those managing chronic wounds. How do you know when a biofilm is present? How do you remove biofilm and prevent reformation?
 
During this webcast, attendees will have an opportunity to learn about biofilm formation, metabolism, and implications for wound care. The latest biofilm research addresses the effect of a wide range of topical antimicrobial agents on fully mature biofilms.


Objectives

  • Review the physiology of biofilm formation
  • Describe the use of Cadexomer Iodine to prevent and disrupt mature biofilms (in-vitro)
  • Review recent case studies using Cadexomer Iodine in treating hard to heal chronic wounds


Target audience

Clinical Wound Specialists who manage chronic non-healing wounds and wounds infected with biofilms
