Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) revolutionized the management of acute and chronic wounds. Today, applications of NPWT are widespread across practice settings. As advancements in application and innovations in technology continue to emerge, it is important that clinicians are knowledgeable on the latest science and best practice use of NPWT. Illustrated by clinical case scenarios, this session will provide real-world insight on how to address the variety and complexity of wounds, in the outpatient setting, through innovations in NPWT.
