Biofilm-Based Wound Care: A Virtual Skills Workshop

This WoundCon Workshop is free for licensed health care professionals to view on-demand. On-demand access is available until December 31, 2021

About Biofilm-Based Wound Care: A Virtual Skills Workshop

Our workshop is both virtual and hands on. With a focus on applying tomorrow what you learn today, this unique experience enables you to learn the theory, watch the skills in action, and then do it yourself.

Based on the International Consensus Guideline, “Defying Hard to Heal Wounds with an Early Antibiofilm Intervention Strategy: Wound Hygiene,” this interactive workshop reviews the 4 essential steps in addressing wound bioburden:
1. Cleanse,
2. Debride,
3. Refashion, and
4. Dress.

Learn. Watch. Do.

Don’t let the word “virtual” fool you. Your participation in this online event is uniquely HANDS-ON. You’re going to get involved and build serious muscle memory by taking your newly learned first-hand knowledge and translating it into real-world application.

Watch live cadaveric demonstrations from the anatomy lab, and practice what you learned in your own home or office “lab” for hands-on skills performance with step-by-step instruction during the workshop. 

 

Participants will leave this 1-day course confident in their ability to:

Discuss the 4 components of an evidence-based early antibiofilm international guideline

Perform early antibiofilm-based intervention strategies utilizing the principles of wound hygiene

Integrate strategies that adopt early antibiofilm intervention into clinical practice
