To further understanding of the importance of wound bed preparation in healing chronic wounds, Smith & Nephew, in collaboration with HMP Communications, presents a monthly series of publications, It’s About TIME. TIME is an acronym for Tissue — non-viable or deficient, Infection or inflammation, Moisture imbalance, and Edge of wound — non-advancing or undermined. Wound management comprising these four major care considerations removes major obstacles to optimal wound closure.

Each installment of the series addresses an aspect of the TIME system.
