EWMA 2020: Looking back to go ahead - Reflections on 20 years of wound management


Few areas in the field of health-related sciences faced a faster development and a more radical change in recent years compared to wound management: new evidences, new technologies and new data strongly modified the way problems are addressed and patients managed. 

The aim is to develop a critical evaluation on new technologies and their interest in a personalized practice. In other words to induce a reflexion on how to reinforce the use of confirmed practices and learn on which criteria to change one’s mind and incorporate new ones.
