7.00 - 8.00pm BST • 2.00 - 3.00pm EDT

The development of Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has diminished the effectiveness of many antimicrobials used to prevent and/or treat wound infection. In order to help address AMR, there have been the development of Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) programmes. These have been designed to educate healthcare workers and control the prescribing of antibiotics and targeting of other antimicrobials and hence reduce the likelihood of AMR. 

This online Antimicrobial Stewardship masterclass will discuss: 
  • The role of HCPs in implementing Antimicrobial Stewardship in wound care 
  • The impact of Antimicrobial Stewardship strategies based on analysis of a real-world online survey and experiences of expert practitioners
  • Where practitioners can enhance effectiveness of Antimicrobial Stewardship in wound care
  • The role of DACC-coated dressings to support Antimicrobial Stewardship in wound care
  • To extend your knowledge how Antimicrobial Stewardship affects you and other HCP’s in the day-to-day treatment of patients.
  • To network and discuss Antimicrobial Stewardship with international KOL’s.
  • To debate potential barriers and solutions in the successful implementation of Antimicrobial Stewardship while identifying alternatives.

ABIGO Medical AB is a Swedish pharmaceutical company that owns, develops, manufacturers and markets pharmaceutical products and medical devices.

The main medical device applications are advanced wound management (AWM), ear, nose and throat (ENT), and nutrition. The company was founded in 1989 and in May 2020, the hygiene and health company Essity, acquired 75% of the company. ABIGO Medical is thereby a key partner and a sub-supplier to Essity as ABIGO develops, manufacturers and markets products including, the company's own registered trademark, Sorbact®.

Infection control and the fight against antibiotic resistance are focus areas. Based on natural processes and physical interactions, Sorbact® removes bacteria, irreversibly binding them to its surface to reduce bioburden and support wound healing. By this mode of action, Sorbact® dressings may lower the use of antibiotics and provide a contribution in the management and prevention of wound infection and, resistance is not likely to occur from binding of microorganisms.

Essity is a leading global hygiene and health company dedicated to improving well-being through products and solutions. Essity’s Medical Solutions segment offers products in wound care, compression therapy and orthopedics.

With world-renowned brands, Essity is one of the global market leaders in a number of therapeutic areas. Leukoplast stands for fast and efficient fixation and treatment of surgical and minor wounds. Cutimed is the specialist for the management of chronic and complex wounds. JOBST provides a comprehensive range of product solutions for patients with venous conditions, lymphedema and lipedema.

Essity takes an important step forward, supporting medical specialists with integrated therapy solutions. These form the basis of a holistic approach to treat medical conditions such as venous leg ulcers, offering both compression garments and wound dressings, to support optimal wound healing.
