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


Few areas in the field of health-related sciences have faced quicker development and more radical changes in recent years than wound management; new evidence, new technologies and new data have strongly modified the ways problems are addressed and patients are managed. 

The aim of this session is to develop a critical evaluation of new technologies and their interest in a personalised practice — in other words, to induce a reflexion on how to reinforce the use of confirmed practices and learn which criteria should be used to change one’s mind and incorporate new ones.
