The Fabulous World of Wounds - Module Three

International Best Practice – Pressure Injury Prevention and Management | #nurse #woundcare

Commencing from 6th March 2018

Pressure Injuries (PI) cause significant patient harm, impact on quality of life, and increase the cost of health care. In Australia, one estimate of PI prevalence in acute and sub-acute health care facilities ranged from 5.6% to 48.4% (mean 25.5%) and estimates in acute care facilities range from 4.5% to 36.7%.

The Nurses for Nurses Network has created a nine-module wound management program that provides the Nurse with the skill and knowledge to assess, plan, and manage wounds in the clinical setting to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.

In this e-Seminar series, we will explore Module Three. The content of each module stands alone as a continuing professional development (CPD) activity and the completion of each module will be awarded a CPD Certificate as evidence of the education activity. There is a total of 7 CPD hours allocated in this e-Seminar program.

In this module, the categories of Pressure Injuries will be identified along with the known risk factors for pressure injury development. Specialised nursing interventions will be explored for high risk populations and best practice recommendations for the prevention and management of pressure injuries including wound and pressure relieving devices will be identified.

Module Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of the risk factors and categorisation of pressure injuries
  • Explore high-risk populations and the specialised nursing interventions required
  • Investigate the interventions available to prevent pressure injuries
  • Examine the wound management strategies available to treat pressure injuries 

Module Three is a series of four e-Seminar sessions: 

All 4 sessions are included in the registration fee.

Session Presenter: Cheryl Dezotti

Cheryl Dezotti is a Director, a Nurse Education Consultant, and a Wound Care Specialist at the Nurses for Nurses Network. Cheryl co-created and administers this Network to provide an online platform for Nurses to meet their continuing professional development requirements. She is also the editor, and major contributor, of the Nursing News Blog associated with this Network.

Cheryl has worked extensively in the field of wound care management over the last 30 years. This passion for wound care has seen her lecture widely on the topic both in Australia and internationally and has led her to author a wound assessment book, multiple wound management documents, as well as creating a postgraduate wound care course.

Recently Cheryl has launched the Nurses for Nurses Wound Assessment Tool that was created based on her extensive experience in the field and her continued interaction with nursing colleagues, mentoring and assisting them to achieve the best possible wound management outcome for their clients. Cheryl continues her research into best practice wound assessment by overseeing a trial of the assessment tool in multiple clinical settings. 

As an author, Cheryl’s aim is to provide the reader information that can be easily and practically applied in the clinical setting. As a presenter, Cheryl is known for her ability to deliver the complexities of wound management in a straightforward and easily understood format that allows attendees to easily apply the content to their individual clinical practice.

Cheryl’s aim is to make a difference to the recipients of health care and she believes that a positive outcome for the patient can only be achieved if Nurses keep up to date with best practice guidelines and their practical application in the workplace.
