EWMA Podcast: Since EWMA's 25 Anniversary in 2016 – What has changed in the last five years?


    In this episode, you can listen to a conversation between EWMA Podcast Host Samantha Holloway and two key figures in the fields of Dermatology and wound management; Dr. Kirsi Isoherranen and Dr. Severin Läuchli. The episode follows the first episode's focus on the historical development of EWMA but narrows the temporal scope to consider the past five years. Changes are evident from both the major innovations happening in wound management, but also as an effect of Covid-19 as a global pandemic. The major question addressed in this episode is what has changed in wound management and care since EWMA's 25th year anniversity in 2016? The podcast provides an overview of the contemporary changes in the discipline of wound management since the last time we celebrated a EWMA anniversery.
