Wound Care and Management is an area that often dictates a client’s outcome. Yet, many clinicians feel uncomfortable providing care and management in this area. 

Wounds and poor skin integrity can influence the placement and improvement of a client more that many other factors. Furthermore, billions of dollars are spent annually on healing and managing these conditions.

Few programs address this need with their clinicians. As a result, this leads to a sense of dis-empowerment and a tendency to ignore skin care as a primary outcome measure. As a nurse or therapist working directly with patients, we all have a responsibility to our patients to have a knowledge of how to manage wounds and chronic skin breakdown, documentation and goal setting in this area, and the importance of prevention.

This seminar discusses and demonstrates common causes and physiology of wounds, assessments that all clinicians will feel comfortable with, up-to-date management techniques and documentation/goal setting guidelines. Useful ‘cheat sheets’, assessment tools, supplies and an extensive manual inform the package that is included with this practical and user-friendly seminar.

Most of all, we have adapted this information to then be immediately applicable to the working clinician, with tools and resources that can be used the next day!

Enhance your practice with these accessible and applicable skills!
