Are you stuck in a rut in regards to your wound care training? Do you cling to the “old ways” of wound care management because you simply haven’t been able to keep up with the rapidly evolving changes in wound care protocols? If you feel that your wound care training is not up to par, you’re not alone.
People are living longer, which means that they are more likely to have chronic health conditions that put them at risk for the development of chronic wounds. Hypertension, diabetes, vascular disease and cardiovascular disease all contribute to the formation of chronic wounds, and older people often have more than one health condition making it more difficult to treat their wounds.
Ongoing wound training is essential in order to keep up with the rapid changes occurring in the field of wound care
These days there are many more dressings available, and choosing the right dressing for your patient’s wound is becoming more and more complex.
