In this EWMA special edition, the journal features research on improving outcomes for patients with hard-to-heal wounds following adoption of the Wound Hygiene Protocol; a new testing methodology to assess relative swelling rise of foam dressings to support measurement of wound bed conformability; and the safety and effectiveness of an antiseptic wound cleansing and irrigation solution containing polyhexamethylene biguanide. The application of deep learning to pressure injury staging to improve its accuracy and efficiency is examined; a retrospective cohort study assesses the antibacterial efficacy of a polyhexanide hydrogel  versus an alginate-based wound dressing in burns; and a pilot randomised controlled trial compares wound size reduction between microjet wound therapy versus sharp debridement. The clinical impact and acceptance of an infection management pathway is the focus of education and evaluation; the treatment of hard-to-heal wounds in ischaemic lower extremities with a novel fish skin-derived matrix is analysed; and a randomised controlled trial compares outcomes between activated carbon cloth versus silver-based dressings in a population with a diabetic foot ulcer. Commentary this month is on the pivotal role of debridement in wound healing.
 
This edition also includes the North American Supplement which features a systematic review of the use of key performance indicators to inform evaluation of wound care programmes for people with complex wounds; a case report of Rosai–Dorfman–Destombes disease with central nervous system involvement and cutaneous wounds; an online survey of family physicians in Canada to determine post-surgical wound care practices; and a case series documenting an alternative approach to the management of post-Mohs surgical wounds with a hypothermically stored amniotic membrane.
