Many wound care experts consider debridement an essential process in wound bed preparation that promotes wound healing. This workshop helped participants become familiar with debridement, including surgical/sharp, enzymatic, autolytic, chemical, biosurgical, and mechanical techniques. Participants gained knowledge about wound evaluation, the goals of debridement (when and why), and its limits, dangers, and related measures.

Attendees was able to practice sharp debridement and learn the necessary practical skills to integrate this essential practice into their wound care management tool kit.

There will be two workshops on debridement.
