For Associate Professor Bowen, the resounding success is a fantastic outcome after spending several years developing the Guideline alongside skin health clinicians and researchers dedicated to reducing the number of children suffering painful and potentially life-threatening skin infections.

“We knew a guideline such as this would need to be user-friendly, filled with images of various skin infections, so it is really pleasing to see it has been so well received and used daily in the communities where it is needed most,” Associate Professor Bowen said.

“In combination with studies currently under way, including the SToP Trial designed to see, treat and prevent skin infections in the Kimberley region –  this new knowledge is driving real change around community awareness of skin infections and how important it is to prevent them.”
