Wound management: when to switch your approach

Expert shares his real-world insights

“It’s essential to spend time thinking about the diagnosis. Something that looks like a classic venous leg ulcer may be something else entirely,” says Dr Sussman, who will be sharing his 30-plus years of real-world insights at Australian Doctor Group's inaugural How to Treat LIVE CPD education event in Melbourne on August 30 and 31.
