Advancis Medical is currently sponsoring a comprehensive e-learning course hosted by Wounds UK on the use of honey in wound care.

Honey is an ancient remedy in the treatment of infected wounds and many widely-used wound care products contain medical-grade honey.

Advancis is renowned for the use of Manuka honey in our wound care dressings, providing sterile and efficient wound management which promotes faster healing.

Honey’s therapeutic properties are mainly attributed to its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions. Honey has been reported to have an inhibitory effect to around 60 species of bacteria.

This e-course aims to:

improve understanding of the use of honey as a topical antimicrobial in the treatment of infected wounds and its role in biofilm management
evaluate the role of honey as an effective debriding agent for wound bed preparation in a range of wound types
increase clinical knowledge of the actions of honey to ensure appropriate use and confidence in selecting antimicrobial dressings based on patient needs.
