Wound healing and nutrition

23 February 2024 13:35 - 14:05

Adequate nutrition is an important component of successful wound healing but can often be overlooked when managing chronic wounds. This session will review the role of nutrition within wound healing, the benefits of macro- and micro-nutrients, recommended nutritional management strategies and provide some practical advice for addressing nutritional deficiencies within the information we provide to patients with wounds.
