Hard to heal Pressure Ulcers
Webinar på engelsk
In this webinar, Dr Paulo Alves will share his knowledge and experience within this area with emphasis on why debridement and exudate management is so important.
What do you do if a wound initially begins to heal but patient and/or wound related factors prevent the wound from continuing to heal in an orderly and timely manner?
Dr Paulo Alves will also cover:
- The importance of early and regular patient and wound assessment in order to identify potentially hard-to-heal Pressure Ulcers
- The factors which contribute to wound complexity, as these may impact on healing progression
- Interventions that could be implemented to increase the healing process in a stagnant and/or hard to heal Pressure Ulcer
- Case studies from Dr Alves’ facility
