Moisture-related skin damage poses a significant challenge to clinicians across the continuum of care.
Presenter: John C. Lantis II, MD
It has long been established that effective debridement plays an integral role in ensuring closure of chronic wounds.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most serious health threats of the 21st century, with a prediction of 10 million excess deaths each year globally by 2050, exceeding deaths caused by ca

Lower extremity wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers and venous ulcers, are more prone to issues of chronicity and recurrence as a result of factors such as peripheral arterial disease, diabetes, a

Documenting a wound assessment is a critical part of wound care.
Presenter: Randall Wolcott, MD
Biofilm is present in chronic wounds anywhere from 60% to 100% of the time. Biofilm has multiple colony defenses that must be overcome to manage chronic wounds effectively. This webinar will discuss the role of treatment modalities in the effective management of biofilm, as well as clinical presentation of wounds in discontinuing intervention as control of the wound (less exudate, less slough, etc.) is obtained.
Presenter: Cathy Wogamon, DNP, MSN, FNP-BC, CWON, CFCN
According to statistical data, more than 2.5 million patients will be impacted by pressure injuries in the United States alone per year, with estimated care for these wounds averaging around $11 mi

Surgical intervention remains one of the key pillars of treatment in health care.
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: 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.
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: 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.
Presenter: Emily Greenstein, APRN, CNP, CWON, FACCWS
Wound infections can result in delayed healing, as well as increased pain and distress to patients and their families. If left untreated, these infections may even lead to death. Organisms are becoming increasingly difficult to treat because of antibiotic resistance. Wound infections can also be costly to treat.
