Opportunities to Improve Outcomes in Wound Care - Made possible by an educational grant from Cardinal Health
The challenges of delivering quality health care to a traditionally underserved population coupled with the limitations and challenges imposed in the correctional environment are immense. Wound healing consists of a complex cascade of events as unique as the patient himself. From wound cleansers to dressing options to support surfaces, identifying factors that promote healing require an individualized assessment and a multidisciplinary plan of care. The purpose of this presentation is to outline the impact of appropriate assessment and product selection on wound healing.
The presentation will address the importance of diverging from a standardized approach to wound care to a patient-specific approach with improved wound healing as the result. Attendees can expect to identify available treatment management options, correlate the effect of product selection on patient outcome, and visualize methods to integrate the patient-specific model into everyday practice.
• Recognize the importance of wound assessment and product selection on the treatment plan
• Discuss the importance of the multidisciplinary team to achieve objectives
• Describe the impact of the patient-specific care model
