Donna Sardina and Nancy Morgan

Palliative Wound Management Basics (Parts 1, 2 & 3) will be presented by Donna Sardina RN, MHA, WCC, Nancy Morgan RN, BSN, MBA, WOCN, WCC, CWCMS, Co-Founders WCEI at this year’s Wild on Wound National Conference in Las Vegas in September 7-10.2011.

This session will discuss the goals of Palliative Wound Management . Our approach to wound care is less aggressive, and we encounter many challenges. We’ll discuss those challenges, which include: wound odor, excessive bleeding, exudate, necrotic tissue, pain, peri-wound breakdown, itching, and body image and caregiver skills. We’ll learn about some of the wounds encountered in Palliative care such as Kennedy Terminal Ulcer, Marjolin, Kaposi Sarcoma, Fungating wounds, pressure ulcers, and fistulas. The session will provide you with knowledge on topical products and interventions you can utilize for palliative wound management
