Whether you are new or experienced to the wound care arena, you know the complexity of wound care challenges. The knowledge of the clinician requires access to resources, creativity and the development of a well communicated holistic plan of care.
Dr. Dolores Farrer has been involved in wound care for over 23 years. Her style of presentation is fun and energetic; full of real-world tips and tricks-of-the-trade. Topics include management of the most common lower extremity wounds, advanced dressings and graft applications, debridement techniques and reducing biofilm. Experience “Hands-On” sessions to enhance learning from a podiatrist’s unique point of view.
At the end of the day, you will leave not just understanding the science behind success in this difficult field, but also the human side to healing. Addressing the challenges of “non-compliant” patients, and having them adhere to the treatment regimen with simple behavioral techniques, will certainly benefit anyone involved in health care. Understanding the world from your patient’s point of view will be an eye-opener for all health care providers and give you better healing outcomes.
