Part 1 - Friday, December 3rd 11am – 2pm EST
Part 2 - Friday, December 10th 11am – 2pm EST
Chronic hard-to-heal lower extremity wounds from etiologies such as diabetes and phlebolymphedema often result in numerous challenges while promoting closure as well as high rates of recurrence. Healing impairments may be due to many contributing factors such as peripheral arterial disease, poorly managed diabetes, infection, and edema. Attend this program for up-to-date information regarding current evidence-based practice for lower extremity edematous vascular wounds. Content is delivered by well-respected faculty who will cover topics such as various chronic wound etiologies, edema, debridement, wound assessment, biofilm management, exercise prescription, dressings, in addition to adjunctive interventions that impact the wound environment to facilitate wound healing opportunities for all wound etiologies.
