Course Description:

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. Attend this highly interactive seminar and learn wound care assessment skills by DOING!

Through the use of wound care teaching models, wound care expert, Heidi H. Cross, MSN, RN, FNP-BC, CWON, 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 presentation, including all stages of pressure ulcers, tissue types, undermining, tunneling, fissure and surgical dehiscence
