Course Description

Chronic wounds do not improve in a predictable or typical trajectory and may persist for months or years. Underlying disease processes, extrinsic factors such as pressure and shear, nutritional factors, age, and comorbid conditions contribute to wound nonhealing. With increased prevalence, morbidity, mortality, and high financial burden associated with chronic wounds, the need to provide evidence-based wound care is imperative. Effective and comprehensive nursing care for people with wounds requires knowledge of wound etiology, presentation, and management. All nurses need more knowledge about the care of wounds. This course will delineate basic wound identification and etiologic description as well as address nonhealing risk factors.
