Our research amongst UK nurses demonstrates the need for greater education and resources on the management of patients with scarring following surgery or trauma*.
To find out more about the experiences of nursing when managing patients with scarring, we conducted a survey amongst almost 1000 nurses, which has been published in The Independent Nurse. Here are some of the key findings from the report:
To aid nurses in the management of patients with scarring, Bio-Oil has worked with a number of HCPs to launch quick reference guides to scar management.
The SCAR guide provides a succinct resource to work through with patients, focussing on the key considerations that should be addressed during the consultation.
There is also a handy CARE guide which can be given to patients as part of the aftercare advice to help them continue to manage their scar at home.
