Chronic wound care is an important subject that affects many different medical fields. Physicians, mid-level providers and nurses need to understand the basics of wound healing in order to provide the best care to their patients. This one-day conference will allow health care providers to learn current practices in wound care as well as background information on what causes a wound to become a chronic, non-healing wound, and what steps to take to facilitate wound healing. Presenters will provide both lectures and hands-on sessions.
List at least three appropriate specialists who may be brought in on a non-healing wound case such as interventional radiologist, vascular surgeon, endocrinologist, lymphedema therapist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, psychiatrist or plastic surgeon. Identify how these specialists will impact the care provided to the patient.
Identify at least three comorbidities impact wound healing to include diabetes, vascular disease, malnutrition, vascular disease, venous/arterial insufficiency, and autoimmune disease.
Examine the advanced modalities available in advanced wound healing centers so clinicians know when and why to incorporate advanced wound healing experts in to the care team.
