Ousey, Karen, Gillibrand, Warren P., Lui, Steve and Stephenson, John (2011) An investigation into the prevention of blistering in post operative wounds - results of a Delphi survey. In: Wounds UK 2011, 14th Nov 2011 to 16th Nov 2011, Harrogate, UK.

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.
