Webinar Description:

This session will discuss the goals of Palliative Wound Management. Our approach to wound care is less aggressive, and we encounter many challenges. We'll discuss those challenges, which include: wound odor, excessive bleeding, exudate, necrotic tissue, pain, periwound breakdown, itching, and body image and caregiver skills. We'll learn about some of the wounds encountered in palliative care such as Kennedy Terminal Ulcer, Marjolin, Kaposi Sarcoma, fungating wounds, pressure ulcers, and fistulas.

Webinar Learning Objectives:
1. Examine the definitions and goals of palliative care vs. hospice care.

2. Differentiate the types of wounds and complications frequently encountered.

3. Demonstrate interventions for palliative wound care.

About the Wound Care Education Institute® (WCEI®)

In 2002, experienced nurses and consultants Nancy Morgan and Donna Sardina noticed a disturbing trend in healthcare. Nurses and other healthcare professionals were passionate about wound care, but access to specialized wound education was either non-existent or limited.

Determined to find a way to improve wound care outcomes and practitioners’ careers, Nancy and Donna combined their shared passion for healing by creating hands-on wound care training and structured wound care education classes. The Wound Care Education Institute® mission is to impact the lives of both individual practitioners, and the patients in need of wound care.
