Evaluation of UrgoClean® for the treatment of sloughy, exuding woundsSelecting a dressing to manage exuding, sloughy wounds can be a challenge for nurses, aiming to promote rapid removal of non-viable tissue whilst controlling exudate and optimising the conditions for healing. This article discusses the evaluation of a wound care product designed to stimulate both autolysis of slough and absorption of excess exudate from the surface of a wound. The Trust’s approach to evaluation will be discussed and outcomes analysed to determine the impact of changing a product on the wound care formulary.
