Why Wound Care Matters: Q&A with Wound Care Clinicians

About This Webinar

Complications from pressure injuries and venous wounds can seriously threaten the health of patients in all care settings. Whether the injuries develop during acute hospitalizations or short-term or long-term post-acute care, the risks are many. The evidence shows that it pays for clinicians and caregivers across the healthcare continuum to prevent pressure injuries. Why? Because wound care matters!

Chronic wounds such as pressure injuries, venous, diabetic and arterial all take a long time to heal. The longer it takes, the higher the risk of complications, which could result in infections and sometimes death. Every care setting has a responsibility to every patient to heal the wounds they have and prevent wounds from happening. Unfortunately, in the U.S., wound care is barely addressed in universities, and therefore, we have clinicians that are not up to speed with the current standards of care, creating a legal risk for them and their facilities.
