Course Description: 

This course provides a solid foundation in wound care by reviewing assessment and goal-focused interventions, exposing you to the most advanced trends and technological advances in the field. After a quick review of skin anatomy and phases of healing, you will examine wound healing barriers and how adjunctive treatments, such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) or negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), can help your patient surpass those hurdles. Sharpen your ability to decipher differential diagnosis by discussing case studies of various wounds of the upper and lower extremity. At the end of this course, attendees gain the skills and confidence to make advanced, evidence-based clinical decisions. This class is a must for veterans and newcomers alike who want to increase their knowledge base, improve their outcomes, and discuss the latest development in wound management.
