The Fabulous World of Wounds - Module Five

Complex and Hard to Heal Wounds | #nurse #woundcare

Commences the 19th of Feb 2019

Complex and Hard to Heal wounds impact the individual, their family, society, and the health economy. Inappropriate or delayed treatment adversely affects the time for the wound to heal. Failure to recognise wounds not progressing towards healing increases the subsequent risk of non-healing and places the patient at unnecessary increased risk of wound complications.

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.

During this virtual series, we will explore Module Five. 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 6 CPD hours allocated in this e-Seminar program.

We will explore the aetiology of hard to heal wounds and learn the clues for management that are hidden within a wound assessment. We will focus on the world of biofilms and identify biofilm management recommendations along with reviewing and problem-solving dressing choices for problem wounds.

Module Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of complex and hard to heal wounds
  • Explore the available strategies to manage biofilm and wound infection
  • Investigate what is best practice wound assessment
  • Review the Nursing strategies that can be applied to the management of complex and hard to heal wounds
