"Chronic wounds are those that do not progress through a normal, orderly, and timely sequence of repair. They are common and are often incorrectly treated. The morbidity and associated costs of chronic wounds highlight the need to implement wound prevention and treatment guidelines."

This course is aimed at helping the therapist in clinically evaluating and documenting the chronic wound. To improve recognition of different tissue composition, appropriate wound documentation and how this impacts their clinical decision making for this patient. By improving their wound composition understanding, they can then improve the treatment modalities and topical applications that are utilized with these patients. This course will provide case studies to demonstrate the application of this information and how the therapist can put these skills into immediate action.
