      Abstract

      This article provides an overview of the European Wound Management Association's (2005) position document Identifying Criteria for Wound Infection and outlines its relevance and clinical applicability. The document is divided into four parts: understanding wound infection; clinical identification of wound infection--a Delphi approach; identifying criteria for pressure ulcer infection; and identifying surgical site infection in wounds healing by primary intention. Each part is discussed separately.
