Jun 24, 2021 10:45am ‐ Jun 24, 2021 11:45am

Standard: $5.00


Within the Wound Bed Preparation model, not all wounds will heal. The goal may prevent infection and wound deterioration. To optimize care for wounds that will not heal requires a partnership between the patient and the health care team. In this session, a nurse physician team will review the updated evidence of the 2021 Wound Bed Preparation model and using a case base approach, highlight patient centered concerns and care strategy options for non-healable and maintenance wounds that should concentrate on control of pain, odor, exudate and optimizing activities of everyday living.

Learning Objective:
  • Apply the updated 2021 wound bed preparation model to optimize care planning for persons with maintenance or non-healable wounds.
