The day-to-day work involved in wound care can be tough. Sometimes you just have to recharge your batteries, which is why WCEI Clinical Instructor Gail Hebert can’t wait to be a part of Wild on Wounds (WOW) 2015 next month. She’ll be among the stellar speakers scheduled for the Sept. 2-5 conference in Las Vegas.

“The great thing about WOW is that you can experience professional excitement again in the company of kindred spirits who have your same passion for wound care,” Hebert says. “And you’ll be excited to return to work, ready to improve wound care practices for your patients.” She will be presenting two sessions at this year’s conference:

  • HOW TO: Medical Device and Moisture Associated Skin Breakdown
  • HOW TO: Skin Tears

A registered nurse for over 35 years, Hebert’s enthusiasm is contagious. With her high-energy style, she will share the latest and greatest in treatments and prevention strategies. She’ll also highlight trends and information published in current literature and used in the field.

“When attendees come to my sessions, they’ll learn how to manage medical device related pressure ulcers so citations and legal issues do not arise from a lack of knowledge or awareness,” Hebert says. She’ll also answer the following questions:

  • What are the latest terminologies used to describe the four most common forms of moisture associated skin damage?
  • Are you in compliance with the 2014 International Guidelines on the prevention of medical device pressure ulcers?
  • How can we drive down the number of medical device related pressure ulcers that our patients experience?

Chronic foot ulcers in patients with diabetes cause substantial morbidity and may lead to amputation of a lower extremity and mortality.
