Riding the third wave of the COVID-19...

The COVID-19 hit Europe one year ago and is still causing loss of human lives as well as major challenges to health care systems across the world. Front line health care staff members are among those most significantly affected by the virus due to daily meetings with COVID-19 patients. This requires use of effective protective equipment throughout the day, and this often leads to discomfort and painful skin reactions or lesions. The focus of this webinar is how the risk of skin injuries can be limited or avoided via correct use of suitable equipment. The panel includes skin and wound experts as well as the users and producers of protective equipment.

The webinar was supported by an unrestricted grant from 3M.
