Is Kliniderm foam silicone a suitable, cost-saving alternative to other silicone foam dressings?

02/07/15 | Exudate Management, Products | Kim Drewery

This product evaluation was undertaken to explore patients’ satisfaction after changing from one silicone foam dressing to Kliniderm silicone foam. The evaluation involved 22 patients with a variety of wounds being cared for at a large primary care organisation. The data was collected over eight dressing changes and the author looked at the dressing’s performance in terms of symptom management, exudate control and comfort. Clinician and patient satisfaction were examined as well as the potential for any financial savings that could be made by making a switch to Kliniderm foam silicone in one CCG’s formulary.
