Updated CPG: Lacerations

The Lacerations CPG has been updated and reviewed by the CPG committee. The Key points for the CPG are

  1. Lacerations require thorough assessment prior to closure
  2. Ensuring suitable analgesia and anaesthesia (local +/- sedation) will improve wound outcomes (function, risk of infection, and cosmesis), as well as the child’s experience
  3. Children that require sedation for wound closure may need similar for removal of sutures. Use absorbable sutures where clinically appropriate
