  • Presenter: Keith Harding, CBE, FRCGP, FRCP, FRCS, FLSW

    Patients with wounds consume significant health care resources, both financial and personnel. These patients exist within all health care verticals and move between the health care settings regularly. With such constant movement, consistent wound measurement and tracking necessary to ensure proper continuity of care.

  • Presenter: James McGuire, DPM, PT, LPed, FAPWHc

    Wound debridement is the foundation for healing in chronic wounds. Excessive debridement is a detriment to healing, whereas proper removal of accumulated non-viable tissue or foreign material from the wound bed maintains a healthy progressive healing trajectory and avoids wound chronicity.

  • Presenter: Heidi H. Cross, MSN, RN, FNP-BC, CWON

    This webinar will discuss the issues that can lead to seemingly non-healing and chronic wounds, including the underlying factors, biofilm development and wound infection, and how to overcome barriers to wound healing through comprehensive assessment and effective treatment interventions.

  • Presenter: Melody Austin, MSN, RN, CWOCN, CNS, CWON-AP

    Recent research indicates that medical device-related pressure injuries (MDRPIs) are thought to be present in up to 30% of all hospital-acquired pressure injuries. In this program, the presenter will discuss the challenges in early recognition of MDRPI, as well as share a step-by-step intervention bundle program in the prevention of MDRPIs that can be applied in your institution or facility.

  • Presenter: Chenel Trevellini, RN, MSN, CWOCN

    Skin care is an essential component of patient care. Managing and preventing skin complications in at-risk populations by addressing risk factors and promoting optimal skin health will support patient quality of life and outcomes.

  • Presenter: Karen Bauer, NP-C, CWS

    Venous disease is the most common cause of lower extremity ulceration, occurring in 3% of those above the age of 80. The goal of this program is to delineate management of venous ulcers based on research and summarize guidelines proposed by different organizations in a practical and clinically applicable manner.

  • Presenter: Dr. Gregory Schultz

    Normal healing of acute skin wounds proceeds through the four sequential phases of hemostasis, inflammation, repair, and remodeling. Neutrophils and macrophages in normal inflammation engulf and kill contaminating bacteria and release proteases that enzymatically debride the extracellular matrix proteins like collagen that were damaged by the injury.

  • Presenter: Dr. Diane Krasner, PhD, RN, FAAN

    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.

  • Presenter: Thomas E. Serena, MD, FACS, FACHM, MAPWCA

    In a recent economic analysis of more than 8 million wounds, the estimated cost of care approached 100 billion dollars. The largest category, surgical wounds with infection, made up 4% of the total. Most cases of surgical site infection or wound dehiscence manifest after discharge from the hospital. These patients are five times more likely to require hospital readmission.

  • Presenter: Dr. David G. Armstrong, DPM, MD, PhD

    Because neuroischemic complications are associated with a high rate of recurrence, this presentation proposes a slight shift in how health care providers counsel and communicate risk to their patients. If the epidemiology of this problem is comparable with that of cancer, and recurrences are common, then perhaps language commensurate with such risks should follow.

  • Presenter: Martha Kelso, RN, HBOT

    Preparing a wound for healing is key to ensure chronic wounds convert to healing wounds. The TIME mnemonic for wound bed preparation assists clinicians and bedside nurses to think critically when making decisions on treatment options. This webinar uses wound photographs paired with terminology to interpret what the wound is communicating.

  • Presenter: Marta Ostler, PT CWS, CLT, DAPWCA

    Choosing a wound dressing can be a difficult task, a task that is often debatable, confusing, and complicated. However, understanding this important step in the wound healing cascade is integral to maintaining and achieving healing outcomes for our patients with chronic and acute wounds.

  • Presenter: Pamela Scarborough, PT, DPT, MS, CWS, CEEAA

    When managing chronic wounds, health care professionals often turn to debridement to manage the necrotic tissue that impedes wound healing. But with a variety of debridement techniques available, it is sometimes hard to know which technique is the best for your patient and your setting.

  • Presenter: Kara S. Couch, MS, CRNP, CWS

    Chronic wounds are a significant and rising problem for clinicians. In this presentation, participants will learn the difference between an acute and chronic wound and review the DIME model. Different dressing choices will be reviewed and evaluated for most appropriate use and cost effectiveness.

  • Presenter: Jennifer Hurlow, GNP-BC, CWCN

    In this presentation, participants will learn about the many factors involved in the risk for infection, as well as key challenges associated with accurate diagnosis and treatment of an infected wound. Practical intervention strategies in the management and prevention will also be discussed.

  • Presenter: Penny Jones, AGNP-C, CWCN-AP, CWS, COCN

    Moisture-associated skin damage (MASD) occurs when the skin comes into contact with an excessive amount moisture and has a damaging effect on the integrity of the skin. Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) is one category of MASD that poses a significant challenge to clinicians across the continuum.

  • Presenter: Cheryl Carver, LPN, WCC, CWCA, FACCWS, DAPWCA, CLTC

    What is the difference between scab and eschar? Properly identifying and documenting the tissue composition of a wound can be a significant challenge. This webinar will provide guidance on the documentation of tissues types, and will help clinician differentiate between the terms scab and eschar.

  • Presenter: Diane Krasner, PhD, RN, FAAN

    Transferring pressure injury theory to practice is easier said than done. This webinar will present seven strategies for pressure injury prevention that you should consider for your facility/practice. Special emphasis will be given to practical, cost-effective strategies that focus on educating staff, documenting and auditing.

  • Presenter: Paula Erwin-Toth, MSN, RN, CWOCN, CNS, FAAN

    Moisture-associated skin damage (MASD) is a general term that encompasses a variety of skin injuries that involve excessive hydration of the skin. Development of MASD can lead to serious complications including infection and pressure injury. A strong knowledge of MASD will help clinicians in the assessment, prevention and treatment of the various types of moisture related skin injuries.

  • Presenter: Michelle Moore MSN, RN, CWCN, WCC, CLWCP

    Be ready to learn about the types of tissue that may impede wound healing, methods of debridement, levels of microorganisms found in a wound bed, the definition of biofilm, and other important factors in wound bed management.
