Accreditation Check:

Clinicians such as RNs, PTs, and OTs have been introduced to wound management in school, but because of a lack of professional experience, have a lack in the practice of examination and treatment selection. This course will provide a foundation of knowledge through an interactive lecture experience on the basic aspects of wound examination, assessment of findings, as well as skin anatomy and stages of wound repair. Each chapter will provide information that builds on the participant's knowledge to give the audience a thorough understanding of all aspects of integument wound healing and examination.

1. Skin Anatomy

This chapter will cover skin anatomy and stages of wound repair. In order to understand the more complex aspects of wound management, the audience needs to have a basic understanding of the anatomy of the skin as well of the initial stages of wound repair that the body undertakes in order for healing to take place.

2. Examination: Part One

This chapter will provide the participants with a basic and practical understanding of examination of patients with integument impairment. Information provided is evidence-based practice but can be performed in a reasonable amount of time for bedside and clinic use.

3. Examination: Part Two

Part two: This chapter will provide the participants with a basic and practical understanding of examination of patients with integument impairment. Information provided is evidence base practice but can be performed in a reasonable amount of time for bedside and clinic use.

4. Evaluation of Findings

Now that we have collected all of the information from the examination, what does it mean to the practitioner? This chapter will review the findings from the examination and review their interpretation. The findings will review the most common type of wounds seen in facilities, concentrating on the signs and symptoms of arterial insufficiency, venous insufficiency, pressure ulcers/injuries, neuropathic wounds, and infection.
