Wound Care

Course Summary

Wound care involves every aspect of wound management.  Things that would be included would be the type of wound being treated, those factors that will affect wound healing such as diet and chronic conditions and determining the proper treatment for that specific wound. Once these factors have been determined a treatment plan will be created by the provider or the wound care team. Aspects will include proper wound care and frequent evaluation of the wound to adjust for changes in wound status.   Health care professionals play an important role in wound care by reporting any changes in patient symptoms such as increased pain or possible loss of sensation.  They can also play a role in the physical aspects of the wound like increased bleeding, changes in discharge color or smell, or changes in skin appearance surrounding the wound.  Health care professionals spend the majority of their time caring for and supporting patients and they will have front-line exposure to any subtle changes in patient status, including their wounds.
