Wound care is perceived as challenging and can cause angst among well intentioned therapists that don’t want to do “the wrong thing.” However, as insurance focuses on attempts to decrease chronic wounds due to the extreme cost of care, there is a push for all disciplines to be involved with this patient population.
This recording will give you multidisciplinary tools and protocols for properly assessing wounds, customizing treatments, and troubleshooting complications in order to facilitate faster wound healing. Explore patient/caregiver education models and clinical protocols designed to address underlying causes of chronic wounds. Watch today to learn how current treatments and therapy models are evolving to keep pace with the latest research, and return to work with a new foundation in wound care.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing the on-line post-test (80% passing score) and completing the evaluation).
