The importance of a risk assessment




Every patient is unique, and their surgery is no different. At Mölnlycke we recognize that risk assessment is a fundamental part of establishing the needs of a patient's care pathway; pre, intra and post-op. When risk changes, the care should too.

Whether it’s an advanced wound dressing or negative pressure wound therapy, our risk assessment framework helps you to inform the care that patients need, based on their individual risk factors.

  • Supporting informed decision making for HCP’s
  • Encouraging patient contribution and responsibility to their own risk reduction

We focus on optimal patient recovery

Our goal is to give patients the best chance of recovery, without complication and with that, we keep the development of our wound recovery solutions at the heart of everything we do. Our Avance® Solo negative pressure device for closed surgical incisions and our best in class Mepilex® Border Post-Op dressing with Safetac® technology, together with our risk assessment framework, enables targeted treatment choices to be made based on patient need, rather than taking a generic approach to recovery.
