Challenges of Wound Care: Bridging the Gap

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

Challenges of Wound Care: Bridging the Gap will be presented by Josie F. Schantz MSN, RN-BC, WCC, Regional Professional Education Manager at this year’s Wild on Wounds National Conference in Las Vegas NV, September 7-10,2011.

Wound care is a relatively new field in medicine. Often times, there is a big gap that seems to exist between medical practice and using clinical data to change healthcare practices.  The goal of this educational offering is to teach healthcare professionals about the science of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT).  We will summarize NPWT mechanisms of action, indications, contraindications and warnings. We will discuss benchmark tips and techniques when applying dressings. Lastly, we will discuss research studies that substantiate the clinical effectiveness of NPWT
