Skin substitutes come in wide range of categories. This, combined with their high cost and reimbursement requirements, can make selection challenging. Clinicians need to determine which skin substitute(s) in the range available are clinically effective and cost-effective for each individual patient’s needs.

In this masterclass, a select group of KOLs debated how to make good selection decisions, and quizzed manufacturers and suppliers as to when and why they should use their products.

The Masterclass, with its high-calibre debate and live Q&As, empowers clinicians to optimise patient outcomes and manage reimbursement issues effectively when using skin substitutes.
