Wound Care and the Latest Best Practice - Hobart

A practical approach to wound management

7 September - 8 September 2017

0741513884

« Back to Events

The purpose of this 2-day Seminar is to provide practical strategies and tools, founded on the latest standards and evidence-based recommendations for effective wound management. 

It is being held in beautiful Hobart – what a fabulous way to combine best practice wound care education and a visit to an exceptional location. The venue for the seminar is the Banksia Room in the Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens which means that during breaks you can wander through the gorgeous gardens which will be bursting with the joy of spring while we are there.

Here is a short video at Hobart to whet your appetite:

The Nurses for Nurses Network Wound Care Seminars are a popular and necessary program for Nurses wanting to keep up to date with best practice wound care guidelines.

In this two-day program, you will learn about:

  • Chronic Wound Management - Combining the latest standards and common sense to ensure best practice
  • Venous, Arterial and Mixed Leg Ulcers - What’s the difference and why is it important in Wound Management
  • Hard to Heal (Complex Wounds) Causes, Tips & Solutions  
  • Wound Infection in Clinical Practice - Exploring the wound infection continuum and the latest international clinical practice guidelines
  • The exploration of recommended wound care products, advanced wound care functions and the latest research influencing products and selection

Chronic wounds are estimated to affect 433,000 or more Australians a year at a conservative cost of $2.6b to the Australian health system. Nursing plays a huge role in how wound care is managed within multiple health service environments; hospitals, aged care settings, community services, and medical practices to name a few. 

The role of the Nurse is not only to support the patient and provide wound management strategies that are able to meet the patient’s individual needs, but also to manage the wound care resources available within the organisation to maximise wound management strategies in the most cost effective way. 

Learning Outcomes for the Seminar

In these sessions, you will:

  • Consolidate knowledge of the aetiology of wounds inclusive of factors that impede wound healing
  • Advance your skills in wound assessments, ongoing documentation, and intervention evaluation
  • Explore available wound products and gain confidence in product selection
  • Gain knowledge in wound management that allows you to advocate confidently for your patient with other members of the heath care team

Numbers are limited due to the size of the venue so book early to avoid disappointment.

The Program: (See 1-Page Itinerary)

DAY ONE: THURSDAY 7th SEPTEMBER 2017

0900 - 0930: Registration and Morning Coffee

0930 - 1130: Chronic Wound Management

Combining the latest standards and common sense to ensure best practice 

Chronic wound management is a key Nursing task but one that can prove difficult unless you have the most up to date knowledge to undertake a comprehensive wound assessment prior to commencing the wound management plan. 

1130 - 1200: Morning Tea

1200 - 1300: Venous, Arterial and Mixed Leg Ulcers

What’s the difference and why is it important in Wound Management

Over 400,000 Australians suffer from venous leg ulcers on an annual basis. The costs associated with care management remain high and whilst there is a plethora of evidenced based guidelines, the management of leg ulcers markedly varies in different healthcare organisations. 

1300 - 1330 Lunch is served

 

1330 – 1700 Hard to Heal (Complex Wounds) & Difficult Wound Causes, Tips & Solutions 

In this session, we explore these difficult wounds and discuss the strategies Nurses can apply to stimulate these wounds to heal. 

Afternoon tea will be served during this session

DAY TWO: FRIDAY 8th SEPTEMBER 2017

0900 - 0930 Registration and Morning Coffee

0930 – 1300: Wound Infection in Clinical Practice

Exploring the wound infection continuum & the latest recommendations to promote healing

Wound infection is a common complication in wound management. Wound infection delays wound healing, increases the risk of client morbidity and mortality, negatively impacts the client’s quality of life and drains financial resources of both the client and the treating organisation. 

Morning Tea will be provided during this session

1300 - 1330 Lunch is served 

 

1330 – 1700: Wound Care

The exploration of recommended wound care products, advanced wound care functions, and the latest research influencing products and selection  

With over 3000 wound care products on the market product selection can be difficult and we will review the products required in a basic wound care kit that will allow you and your organisation to address the majority of wounds that you would see in your clinical practice. 

Wound care research is progressing rapidly and we will explore the latest products available now and on the horizon. You will be fascinated!  

The session will end with a series of photographic case studies where the assessment and management of individual wounds will be discussed & debated.  If you are managing any difficult wounds in your clinical practice at present, this is a great opportunity to discuss them with a wound care specialist and your Nursing Colleagues. 

Afternoon tea will be served during this session
