2020 Webinar: Solutions to Lower Extremity Wounds

Each additional phone line will be billed at the LHA Member/Non-Member rate. Advance registration and payment is REQUIRED to ensure delivery of instructional materials.

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE: Clinical staff, nurse leaders, and any staff members who work with wound care.

OVERVIEWImpaired circulation and bony deformities make lower extremity wounds difficulty to heal, and recommended interventions are often rejected. This webinar evaluates treatment of arterial, pressure-related, edema-related and neuropathic wounds of the lower leg, ankle and foot and provides an updated look at products and treatments that help with healing.

 

OBJECTIVES:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize four key assessment points for lower extremity wounds;
  • Examine three methods for decreasing bacterial load in high-risk wounds;
  • Analyze optimal dressing choices based on wound depth and exudate amount; and
  • Contrast classic and disposable negative pressure wounds therapy options.
