Description

This digital seminar is currently on pre-order meaning that the video will not be ready until 2-3 weeks after the program has taken place. 

In healthcare facilities across the country, billions of dollars are being spent annually on the treatment of skin care and wound management.

You are on the front lines of providing care to patients with a variety of skin and wound conditions, and play a critical role in patient outcomes and your facility's reimbursement for services.

There is no better way to learn all of the skills you need to provide state-of-the-art care for your patients than through Hands-On Clinical Labs.

In this highly interactive recording, you'll learn wound care assessment skills by DOING!

Through the use of wound care teaching models, wound care expert, Ann Kahl Taylor, will teach you proper wound assessment techniques. The Hands-On Clinical Lab will add a live, hands-on component to learning that will enhance your retention of skills and techniques covered.

Practice identification, measurement and the applications of various products on life-like wound care models. These models provide a life-like simulation to allow for improved assessment of a wide variety of commonly-seen wound care presentations, including all stages of pressure ulcers, tissue types, undermining, tunneling, fissure and surgical dehiscence.

Take your understanding of wound care to the next level with this hands-on, interactive clinical lab.
