Program Summary   

Wound treatment is too often based on wound appearance alone, and further compromised by communication of inaccurate assessment data to the prescriber. Knowledge and skills are needed to identify factors which contribute to or impede healing for various wound types. The participants will receive an understanding of how to facilitate effective wound management that is based on a holistic approach – incorporating wound etiology, co-morbidities, nutrition/hydration status and social factors. Additionally, focus is placed on the importance of cost effective use of resources and assessment accuracy which reflects improvement in outcomes. 

This presentation is at the appropriate level for RN, LPN, case manager, clinical managers, coders and others who are responsible for wound assessment, documentation, data collection and coding related to wound and skin issues. 

Program Goals:

  • Explain basic skin anatomy and physiology
  • Differentiate partial vs. full thickness tissue damage and healing process
  • Differentiate acute vs chronic wounds and the impact of bacterial levels on healing
  • Explain assessment characteristics utilized to identify wound etiology and management
  • Correlate the utilization of validated wound assessment tools
