As wound care professionals, preventing wounds before they occur is a key concern in caring for our patient populations. Two concepts – Population Health and Culture of Health – have been developed that can be used to prevent a number of chronic wounds, including venous ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers and, relevant to this presentation, pressure ulcers/injuries.
This webinar will discuss the meanings and implications of these two concepts for wound care prevention, and provide tips on how the frameworks of Population Health and Culture of Health can be applied to pressure ulcer/injury prevention programs in your facility.
Registrants for this educational webinar will learn:
- How to identify groups at-risk for developing pressure ulcers/injuries
- How to apply the Population Health and Culture of Health methods to nursing, education, and research
- At least three ways to use the concepts of Population Health and Culture of Health for structuring wound prevention programs
