In some chronic wounds, excessive exudate can inhibit wound healing. Clinicians must manage the wound, ensure cost and clinical effectiveness and a positive patient experience as mismanagement may lead to non-concordance. This article discusses the evaluation of absorbent products within a community provider organisation, and includes patient feedback and opinions of the clinicians delivering the care.
