Conflicts of Interest: Terry received an honorarium for her time (not from me!) and advises on various wound products. In all her correspondence she ensures the following is clear "Due to my affiliations with companies and organisations nationally and internationally there may be a perceived or actual conflict of interest.  These conflicts will be managed in the public’s best interests."

 

Thanks all, rating 5 stars in iTunes is a great help +/- a review for this free resource.

 

Enjoy friends.
