Target Audience

Nurses, NPs, PAs, and physical therapists who need a basic understanding of wound and ostomy assessment and care.

Description

Do you ever wonder how to assess and differentiate treatment of healing wounds, determine if there are local or deeper wound infections, or recommend the treatment protocol for ongoing wound care? Then this workshop is for you!

This hands-on workshop will provide the NP, PA, RN, and PT a practical assessment and treatment lab for working with acute/chronic wounds, peristomal skin breakdown, and pouch-leaking issues. The problem-solving pearls provided will assist with hands-on practice of wound/ostomy products using clinical scenario presentations.
