Microclimate: The Rest of the Story?

Jun 23, 2022 1:00pm ‐ Jun 23, 2022 2:00pm

Credits: None available.



Pressure and shear are the usual causes of pressure injury that we address. However, microclimate also contributes to skin breakdown. Could it be the "rest of the story" explaining why not all wounds are preventable? Or healable? This session will explain how microclimate of the skin plays an important role in skin health and how support surfaces can help it.

Learning Outcome:
Following this activity, the learner will report increased confidence in their ability to examine patients and determine if microclimate of the skin needs to be altered.

This webinar is supported by an educational grant from Hillrom. The WOCN® Society does not endorse specific products and services.
