Preventing, Closing, and Preventing Recurrence of Hard-to-Heal Wounds with AMT

VIRTUAL TRAINING: February 9th and 10th  11:00 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. each day

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

This program will discuss tissue injury from the perspectives of preventing and treating hard-to-heal wounds. It is important clinicians recognize threats to tissue health for the population served in long-term care nursing facilities. When tissue health prevention fails the result is often hard-to-heal wounds such as pressure ulcer/injuries or other wound etiologies. Attend this program to discuss prevention of tissue injury, current wound closure interventions, tissue/wound closure augmentation using supportive modalities such as negative pressure and preventing recurrence of wounds you’ve managed to close. Content is based on current evidence-based practices and CMS regulatory guidelines (F686, F684) for prevention and treatment, and reporting (MDS, Section M) of hard-to-heal wounds. This is a basic to intermediate program appropriate for treatment nurses, clinical team leadership such as DONs/ADONs, and other interdisciplinary members such as therapy and providers.
