What You’ll Learn About

Acute and Chronic Wounds
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 standards of care expected.

Wound Healing
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.

Wound Care Treatment Options

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

Nutrition

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.

Support Surfaces

Patients 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.

Management & Treatment of Vascular Ulcers

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

Atypical Wounds

On occasion, a wound care professional will encounter wounds 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 patients.

Infection Control

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.

Geriatric Skin Conditions

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.

Wound Rounds and Assessment

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

F686 Regulatory Requirements

An outline of Federal regulations regarding the care and service of pressure wounds in post-acute care facilities. These regulations are intended to ensure the highest practical, physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of residents with pressure ulcers and those that are at risk of developing them.

Prevention of Re-Hospitalizations

Post-acute care facilities often have residents that have been admitted after discharge from a hospital for various ailments. Upon this discharge, readmission prevention is extremely important and this can be achieved by establishing protocols to enhance monitoring and through cooperation among different stakeholders.

Delayed Wound Healing

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