On 12th of May 2022, the NWCSP hosted its very first NWCSP Evidence for Wound Care webinar exploring the VenUS 6 study, a randomised controlled trial of compression therapies for the treatment of venous leg ulcers. VenUS 6 is a current National Institute of Health and Social Care (NIHR)-funded wound care trial which is currently recruiting across the UK.
Guest speakers at the webinar included:
Professor Jo Dumville (University of Manchester): discussing the background of the VenUS 6 study and previous VenUS studies.
Catherine Arundel (Research Fellow, University of York): giving information about the design of the study and an update on the study at present.
Dr Leanne Atkin (Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust): sharing the Trust’s experiences as a VenUS 6 trial site.
This session is relevant to all health professionals with an interest in wound care and especially those who may want to consider further involvement in research.
