TIPS FOR IMPLEMENTING

URGOSTART PLUS TREATMENT RANGE

Implement NICE guidance for UrgoStart treatment range in your local practice to improve patient outcomes 

HOW TO IMPLEMENT NICE GUIDANCE LOCALLY

When consulted on best-practice to successfully implement UrgoStart Plus treatment range in to local practice, clinicians emphasised the following:

  • Use a care pathway to ensure correct assessment and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers or leg ulcers

  • Offer appropriate education and training to staff to increase clinical confidence and ensure appropriate patient selection

  • Ensure UrgoStart Plus range is on your local formulary and ensure enough stock is available for the staff.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CARE PATHWAYS

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust example

Implementing a leg ulcer pathway proved very beneficial to clinicians, patients and the trust in Manchester.

By enhancing the importance of conducting a holistic assessment and the necessity to use the right dressing on the right patient profile, this pathway significantly improved healing outcomes.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CARE PATHWAYS

Diabetic foot ulcers represent a huge challenge worldwide. Timely referral and implementation of evidence-based practice is a priority to address these challenges, 

This fast track pathway for diabetic foot ulcers features UrgoStart as the local treatment and has been adapted for England and Scotland.
