In spring 2011, a multidisciplinary group of clinicians formed a post-launch focus group to discuss their experiences of using Adaptic Touch® non-adherent dressing in clinical practice. The information gained adds to the research already available on the product, which was presented in a review (Bianchi and Gray, 2011) and suggested that the in vivo evidence, along with pre-launch focus groups and case reports, indicated that the product performed well in both laboratory and clinical settings. The post-launch focus group discussed properties such as initial adherence to the wound bed, ease of application and removal, atraumatic dressing changes and cost-effectiveness, offering an invaluable insight into how the product functions in practice.
