All wounds have a mechanism of injury. This session will focus on basic wound etiologies and the characteristics a healthcare practitioner needs to identify in order to determine how a wound developed. Classification of wounds by determining the level of tissue destruction will also be discussed.
Assessment techniques and strategies are the base of every successfully healed wound. This session will focus on each portion of assessing a wound, teaching skills and strategies to accurately capture the description of a wound. By compiling a thorough, accurate and skilled assessment, wound management teams will be able to determine a comprehensive treatment plan for wound healing.
Healthcare practitioners must be able to capture an accurate description of all aspects of a patient’s wound and wound history in order to optimize a comprehensive care plan for wound healing. This session provides an overview of wound dressing categories and indications for their use. Preparing a wound bed for proper healing will also be discussed.
It takes a multi-focused approach and treating the entire patient to close and maintain closure of wounds while they are in the remodeling phase of healing. Identification of the cause(s) of tissue destruction, anticipating the high risk areas for individualized care, and working as an interdisciplinary team is necessary to maintain the integrity of a healing wound.
