Thinking Outside the Box: A Unique Approach to Wound Management
Ashley Begarly BSN, RN, WOCN
Managing wounds can be challenging and complicated. You have a proven toolbox of products, but sometimes dressings do not stay in place. This could lead to unnecessary dressing changes – creating avoidable costs, extra time, and potentially causing delays in the wound healing process. A product that makes it easier to keep wounds covered could help mitigate the impact of difficult-to-dress wounds on you, your patients, and your facility. Join us for an introduction to a unique product solution that could change the way you manage wounds by adding a new tool to your toolbox.

Wound Hygiene in Practice: Case Reviews
Richelle Roethler, FNP, CWCN-AP
Hard to heal wounds continue to challenge wound clinicians across the continuum of care, and mounting evidence points to biofilm being a culprit. The Wound Hygiene protocol arose out of an international consensus convened to review strategies to minimize the impact of biofilm and optimize the wound tissue environment to enable wound progression. The protocol provides a structured approach to managing hard to heal wounds, which includes wound cleansing, debridement, refashioning the edges, and choosing an appropriate wound dressing.
Participants in this session will be able to discuss the rationale for the Wound Hygiene approach to hard to heal wounds and describe the steps of the protocol. The discussion will be enhanced with clinical cases providing real-world evidence of the protocol in practice.
