This 1 day course fosters a deeper appreciation of the components of wound healing, beyond the three phases of inflammation, proliferation, and maturation/ remodeling. Content includes an overview of comprehensive patient assessment, such as physical, nutritional, and environmental risk factors for the onset and delayed healing of chronic wounds. The course will cover three major categories of chronic wounds: pressure ulcers, vascular ulcers (wound due to arterial and/ or venous insufficiency), and diabetic neuropathic ulcers. Discussion will incorporate factors that impede wound closure including the impact of compromised circulation in the development of ischemia, hypoxia, infection, denervation, edema, and the accumulation of necrotic debris. Participants will also engage in differential assessment and treatment planning. Case studies will highlight appropriate management of chronic wounds through a variety of interventions, such as debridement, choice of topical agents and dressings, negative pressure wound therapy, hydrotherapy, phototherapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and hyperbaric oxygen.
