  • Presenters: Barrett Larson, MD and Robin Gasparini, DNP, RN, ACNS-BC

    Hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) continue to rise despite progress made in reducing all other hospital-acquired conditions (HACs).

  • Presenter: Jennifer Hurlow, GNP-BC, CWCN

    Despite new wound care products and technologies, the burden of wounds for both patients and their providers continues to rise. In this environment, wound biofilm continues to emerge as a key factor in the pathology of non-healing wounds of all etiologies, and effective biofilm management as the missing link in these hard-to-heal wounds.

  • Presenter: Lee Ruotsi, MD, ABWMS, CWS-P, UHM

    Preventing pressure injuries has always been a challenge, not just for the caregivers, but also for the health care system as a whole.

  • Presenter: Charles B. Parks, DPM, FACFAS

    The cost of caring for non-healing, chronic wounds in the United States has been estimated at a staggering $50 billion per year, 10 times more than the budget of the World Health Organization.

  • Presenter: Maria Goddard, MD, CWS, FAPWCA

    Surgical intervention remains one of the key pillars of treatment in health care.

  • Presenter: Charles A. Andersen, MD, FACS, MAPWCA

    High bacterial loads and biofilm impede wound healing and must be removed but are challenging to detect at the point-of-care.

  • Presenters: Theresa A. Hurd, PhD, MScN, MScEd, ACNP, RN and Mandy Spitzer, BSN, RN, CWOCN, CFCN

    Transform your approach to complex wound care by participating in this program highlighting the accessibility and new science associated with negative pressure would therapy (NPWT).

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

    Lower extremity ulcers, especially diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) and venous leg ulcers (VLUs), can be difficult to manage, and wound closure sometimes takes many months to achieve.

  • Presenter: Bonnie Boie, RN, WOCN

    Choice is good, but making the right choice is better.

  • Presenters: Catherine T. Milne, APRN, MSN, ANP/ACNS-BC, CWOCN-AP and Samantha Savaglio

    We all have flora on our skin, but when the skin microbiome is out of balance because of excessive heat and moisture, serious skin problems can result.

  • Presenters: Leanne Atkin, PhD, MHSc, RGN and Christine Murphy, PhD, RN, WOCC(C)

    This activity provides 1 CME credit / 1 contact hour.
    Current evidence links the pathology of wound hard-to-heal wounds directly to commonplace wound biofilms. The normal healing process of wounds may become derailed due to unseen barriers such as pathogenic biofilm. Biofilms are tenacious and house a colony of multispecies microbes, however not detected by the naked eye. Patients are at higher risk of infection, impaired quality of life, and financial burden when delayed healing due to biofilm presence occurs.

  • Presenter: Karen L. Bauer, DNP, APRN-FNP, CWS, FAPWCA

    Wound care clinicians understand the importance of wound cleansing; wounds are warm and moist, creating the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and biofilm.

  • Presenter: Michael N. Desvigne, MD, FACS, CWS, FACCWS

    Debridement is an essential part of wound therapy that allows the transition to subsequent therapies in order to promote healing. Whether the goal is granulation tissue formation, epithelialization for wound closure, or to establish enough healing progression to create an adequate wound to allow for surgical closure, debridement is the cornerstone to wound progress, and if not performed will be an impediment to wound progress.

  • Presenters: Catherine T. Milne, APRN, MSN, ANP/ACNS-BC, CWOCN-AP and Jennifer Hurlow, GNP-BC, CWCN

    The presence of high levels of bacteria hinders wound closure and contributes to delayed healing. Identification and management of bacterial load in acute and chronic wounds is challenging, yet is critical to optimize treatment outcomes. While clinicians assess clinical signs and symptoms of infection in the wound as a proxy for bacterial burden, the variability of these signs and symptoms hinders timely intervention to treat bacteria in wounds. Objective, real-time information on the presence of bacteria in wounds has been lacking until now.

  • Presenter: The Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders

    The Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders presents a roundtable discussion with front line experts as they discuss the challenges and opportunities clinicians now face during this COVID-19 crisis. This pandemic has driven significant change in the health care system disrupting- indeed transforming- wound care practice. We have brought together the multidisciplinary team of wound care- physicians, nurses, podiatrists and physical therapists to address these issues in their practices.

  • Presenter: Dr. Windy Cole

    Chronic DFUs are some of the most difficult wounds a clinician can face. It is therefore important to understand the care and interventions that patients with these wounds often need. Clinicians who encounter DFUs in their practice will find this presentation instructive because it demonstrates ways to encourage healing and prevent chronicity in DFUs.

  • Presenter: Kara Couch, MS, CRNP, CWCN-AP

    Given the current global situation with COVID-19, many health care providers have had to make changes with how they deliver care in order to protect themselves and their patients from exposure to the virus. To help with this, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has broadened access to Medicare telehealth services so that beneficiaries can receive a wider range of services from their doctors without having to travel to a health care facility. What does this mean for wound care providers?

  • Presenter: Mandy Spitzer, BSN, RN, CWOCN, CFCN

    During this presentation you will briefly learn about the Smith+Nephew PICO™ single-use NPWT device for wound management.

  • Presenter: Alisha Oropallo, MD, FACS

    Avoiding chronicity is the goal of wound care professionals everywhere but doing so is rarely easy and not always possible. Understanding the underlying pathologies that led to wound development is a good starting point; however, resolving those issues can lead to the progression of wound healing.

  • Presenter: Dr. Alison J. Garten

    Venous leg ulcers (VLUs) affect between 1% and 3% of the total US population and are especially prevalent in older adults. These wounds can be difficult to treat and often have high associated costs, as well as high recurrence rates.
