Jun 5, 2016 10:10am ‐ Jun 5, 2016 11:10am

Credits: None available.

Standard: $10.00


This is an opportunity to practice using the WOCN’s newly released VLU Algorithm for compression for primary prevention, treatment and prevention of recurrence of venous ulcers. Case scenarios from a variety of care settings and at various stages of disease will be shared. Attendees will be able to participate in this interactive session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Embrace the Clinical CEAP classification system for patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) and use it to guide their interventions
  • Utilize the WOCN Society's VLU algorithm to ensure EBP guidelines are applied in the delivery of care to patients with CVI
