Chaucer said; “Time Heals all Wounds”. Wound healers know this is far from the truth. In our day to day work, it is not the Stage 2 pressure injuries or partial thickness skin tears, but rather the unusual, atypical and complex wounds that occupy the majority of our thoughts and energies. This session will present, in a case-based format, some rational strategies for sorting out the complex cases we face.
Upon completion of this activity, the learner will report in the post-activity evaluation increased confidence in their ability to identify the characteristics, treatment, and management of atypical wounds.
