Join Fiona Downie and Rachel Allaway as they discuss the under-recognised and underreported complication of medical adhesive-related skin injury (MARSI). Fiona will explore the causes of MARSI and what a good skin care regimen should look like, including the use of skin protection products and medical adhesive removers, with a focus on Appeel Sterile Medical Adhesive Remover (CliniMed). Rachel will discuss the prevention and management of MARSI in paediatrics, a high-risk group that requires specialised care and attention.

Join Fiona and Rachel live on Wounds UK on Thursday 28th September at 1 PM.

Learning objectives:

  1. Explore the causes of MARSI and identify patient groups at high risk
  2. Learn what a good skin care regimen looks like, including the importance of using appropriate skin protection products and medical adhesive removers such as Appeel Sterile
