The heart of our services and expertise. This provides a background on the routine challenges faced by wound care health professionals in the post-acute care setting as well as the standard of care expected.

Wounds expose tissue that are normally protected by the skin, making them susceptible to infection. By restricting factors that are favorable to pathologic organisms and by promoting an environment that stimulates the immune system, wounds are able to heal without complications.

Understanding the physiologic fundamentals behind the recovery of the body from external wounds will lay the foundation for treatment and management. This is an introduction to the phases and factors affecting normal healing.

The main demographic seen in post-acute care facilities are particularly prone to developing dermatologic conditions due to intrinsic and extrinsic factors that affect the structure and function of the skin.

An abundance of wound healing solutions has emerged to manage the needs of our residents. Knowing which product to use is an indispensable tool in the arsenal of a wound care health professional.

Management of external wounds does not stop at the initial point of receiving treatment but requires clinical monitoring and documentation to assure that the resident is receiving adequate care to help optimize healing and prevent deterioration.

Often overlooked, meeting a resident’s nutritional needs is a vital element that is as much a part of wound care as the other aspects of treatment. This module discusses nutritional concepts in the context of wound healing and nutritional status assessment.

An outline of Federal regulations regarding the care and service of pressure wounds to maintain the highest practical, physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being for residents with pressure ulcers and those that are at risk of developing them.

Residents who are unable to move or change positions are at a great risk of developing pressure wounds. Prevention can be achieved by combining treatment protocols with bed characteristics that offers adequate support and weight distribution.

Post-acute care facilities usually have residents admitted to hospitals for various ailments. Upon discharge, readmission prevention can be achieved by establishing protocols to enhance monitoring and through cooperation among the different stakeholders.

Vascular ulcers require special attention from health professionals due to the multifaceted nature of the wounds, possible amputation, as well as the significant burden they place on a resident. We discuss how to handle these chronic and reoccurring cases.

In wound management, numerous local and systemic factors affect the rate of repair and must be monitored and assessed to ensure good prognosis. We look at the different issues that can lead to timely wound healing.

On occasion, a wound care professional will encounter cases that, because of their pathophysiology, will require special treatment. We present five such ailments that must be recognized to ensure that optimal care is given to all residents.

The education provided helped me clarify certain wound types. It helped me learn how to clearly identify venous and arterial wounds and diabetic wounds. After doing the reading and looking at the examples, I understood it better. The program made it simple to learn.”
