International collaboration in wound care to protect lives worldwide


We are pleased to announce the release of an international wound consensus developed by a team of international experts: “Use of wound antiseptics in practice”. The prevention, detection, treatment and management of wound infections remains a crucial challenge for clinicians worldwide.

The use of antiseptics plays an important role in the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and multidrug-resistant bacteria that act as one of the main opponents to wound healing. The consensus is to provide guidance for clinicians. Its highlights include:

  • Management of the challenges and risks of infection in wound care 
  • Use of different antiseptics in practice 
  • Wound cleansing and tips for best practice 
  • Guidance and pathways for antiseptic use 
  • The importance of an antimicrobial stewardship-focused approach
