We have blogged in the past about specific wound care products that EB families may employ daily. As EB families bring others into their circle to support caregiving needs, they may need additional information for others who may be sharing in duties. Did you know that Hollister offers Wound Care Learning Resources for its wound and skin care products including informational demonstration videos at its website?










The Hollister line of wound care products has its own section of Wound & Skin Care Learning Resources dedicated to providing information for each product. For example, for families who might be using the Restore Contact Layer FLEX and Silver dressings, videos are available that not only explain Hollister’s TRIACT technology but also best use of the product. These videos also show products being applied and all related supplies or materials that may be used during the dressing process with that product.


In addition to online videos and product information, Hollister Wound Care also offers valuable tools to provide metrics to families as they evaluate products they are using and making decisions to adjust the supplies they use in their daily wound care process. The Wound & Skin Learning Resources section of the website includes such tools as the Pain Assessment Scale and the Wound Measuring Guide to help caregivers evaluate the dimensions of wounds being treated to select the right product and cut dressing materials properly.


If you or your family visit the site’s Learning Resources page and are unable to find your question answered, you can reach out directly to the team at Hollister by clicking here. But please note: you should always reach out directly to your physician with any questions specific to the care of your family member with EB. Getting as much information as you can to become as informed a caregiver as possible will ensure you have access to the most up-to-date knowledge about the disease and learn all that you can about the best treatment options available.
