Essity Medical Solutions are on the verge of launching a new campaign supporting antimicrobial stewardship, with the kick off at the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) in June.

Research into this combined approach is important in advancing the fight against wound infections, which is why we are in constant dialogue with healthcare professionals, researchers, facility managers and key opinion leaders.
