    Abstract

    Surgical patients are at risk of developing post-operative wound complications
    including blistering and infection. In patient stays in hospital could be
    lengthened; costs increase and morbidity/ mortality rates can be adversely
    affected (Gupta et al, 2002). There are a limited amount of studies that have
    examined the effect of different dressings on wound healing providing no
    conclusive recommendations as to the most appropriate and effective choice
    of wound dressing (Tustanowski 2009). This poster presents the results
    of an international 2 stage Delphi survey carried out via e mail, to achieve
    consensus between experts and practitioners, as to the most clinical and
    cost effective dressings and post-operative wound management to prevent
    blistering and other complications.
