Objective: To evaluate the clinical effect of functional dressings applied to the donor site wounds using meta-analysis. Methods: Computer search PubMed, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Ebsco, Chinese Journals Full-text Database, Wanfang Database, VIP Database, search date for the database from the self-built library up to April 2018, published in the relevant functional dressing treatment Literature on the wounds of the donor area. The measurement indexes were wound healing time, infection rate, and scar growth. Revman5.3 software was used for meta-analysis. Results: A total of 13 articles were included, including 984 patients and 1057 wounds. In the functional dressing group, the wound healing time was shorter than that of the traditional dressing group, with mean difference -2.31 (with 95% concordance interval -2.67~-1.94, P<0.00001). The incidence of wound infection in the functional dressing group was lower than that in the traditional dressing group, with relative risk (RR) 0.22 (with 95% confidence interval 0.10~0.51, P=0.0004). The scar score in the functional dressing group was lower than that of the traditional dressing group, with mean difference -1.06 (with 95% concordance interval -2.31~-0.89, P<0.00001). Conclusions: Compared with traditional dressing, functional dressing can accelerate wound healing, reduce infection rates, and reduce scar hyperplasia. Due to the quality of the included studies and sample limitations, the above conclusions still need to be verified by more high-quality research.

This conference is proudly hosted by the Australian Association of Stomal Therapy Nurses: www.stomaltherapy.com

One of the Association's major objectives is the promotion of quality care for a wide range of people with specific needs. These needs may be related to ostomy construction, urinary or faecal incontinence, wounds with or without tube insertion and breast surgery.

Patients/clients across the life span are provided with preventative, acute, rehabilitative and continuing care as required. Another objective is the maintenance and improvement of professional standards in relation to Stomal Therapy Nursing Practice to the highest degree possible. Recognition of the need for and encouragement of the development of specialist expertise in the field of Stomal Therapy Nursing underpins the Standards for Stomal Therapy Nursing Practice.
