Wound Care Course Description
The overall purpose of this program are:
1) To provide participants with common knowledge in the area  of skin and wound management.
2) To educate the participants in wound assessment  and patient treatment plans in wound care.
3) To build confidence to new nurses when they encounter patients and residents that require wound care.
4) Describe factors involved in development of a pressure ulcer and interventions to prevent their occurrence.
5) To discuss questions that is frequently ask in a calm and no pressure environment.
As the need increases for evidence base wound management and improved outcomes, many disipline are playing a roll and caring for and managing wounds. Clinicians who are new to wound care or those who need a review or update will benefit from this class. This class is designed to better equip you to provide quality care and interventions for your patients with wounds. This course is for educational purpose only and does not identify LVN's or RN's as a certified wound care nurse but our goals is to provide information which will empower nurses and other members of the health care team with resources for a successful  and sustainable skin and wound care practice and improve knowledge of non-expert wound care providers. Education of patients, families, caregivers and healthcare providers is the key to a proactive program of prevention and timely, appropriate interventions. Wound management involves a comprehensive plan with consideration of all factors contributing to and affecting the wound and the patient. No single discipline can meet all the needs of patient with a wound. The best outcomes are generated by dedicated, well educated personnel from multiple disciplines working together for the common goal of holistic patient care.
