My passion is wound care and of course the presenter appeared to have an extensive knowledge of conditions and treatments within her practice. So I found the revision very interesting and easy to absorb.

Not seeing many interesting wounds working in midwifery, this was an informative talk on current wound management. It was a shame though that the pictures of the different wounds wasn't allowed to be shown.
