|Abstract||Wound care management and the dressing of wounds represent some of the most basic services offered in primary health care facilities across Southern Africa. Clinicians should have a basic understanding of the processes of wound healing and wound bed preparation to match the ideal cost-effective dressing to the particular type of wound to be managed. In the ‘kingdom of wounds’, the authors use a popular analogy and propose the best five strategies for the clinician in choosing the right management option in the ‘game of dressings’. © 2022 The Authors.
