The Institute has been instrumental in producing a number of internationally acknowledged documents such as the review and extension of the TIME framework as well as publications in the International Wound Journal, Journal of Wound Care, Wounds International and other relevant journal. Other available resources include a curriculum outline on wound infection and several reviews and commentaries. The following resources focus on the latest evidence, research and education in wound infection prevention management. These are free to download and use in practice.
