Selection Criteria and Review Process of LINK Award

The review on prizes will consist of two levels. For first level review, the committee (Wounds international + Hydro Experts to be selected) will decide whether the pre-proposal (abstract) is suitable or not suitable for prizes. Second level review will evaluate the full work (complete presentation) based on the below criteria. Feedback will only be provided to nominated authors who are invited to submit a full presentation.

1. Practical importance – in Exudate management or Epithelialization

2. Clear problem statement (how the problem will be addressed)

3. Rigor of methodological approach (use of case series template)
