The presenter was informative and presented some information about wound dressings that I questioned. It was interesting however heavily edited on areas which were of great interest and applicable to my nursing in a dermatology practice

A very good overview of wound management. Obvious editing throughout the lecture sometimes made it a bit difficult to follow.
