WOCN Conference 2018

W500 - Demystifying Adjunctive Therapies: Past, Present and Future

Jun 6, 2018 8:00am ‐ Jun 6, 2018 9:00am

Standard: $5.00

Description

Sometimes, despite standard care, wounds need an extra boost to heal. A clinician may be challenged by the multitude of tools available, and what may be most appropriate in a given situation. This session will review adjunctive modalities, their indications, and their mechanisms of action. Current evidence will be presented which supports the use or non-use of these agents. Some “old standbys” should be retired from practice, while other tools are currently underutilized in clinical practice.

Learning Objective:

  • The learner will be able to appropriately include adjunctive modalities into a wound plan of care, including referring to other professionals when indicated

Speaker(s):

  • Renee Cordrey, PT, PhD(c), MSPT, MPH, CWS, Lead Therapist, HealthPro-Heritage at Home
