Sheraton Grand Phoenix, AZ
The Annual High Risk Diabetic Foot Conference
Honoring Our Federal Services Healthcare Professionals
Clinical Considerations for Creating a Functional Wound Bed: Debridement and Beyond
Wednesday, November 18th • 2:00 - 6:35 PM
The Encanto Room on the 2nd Level

Supported in part by an unrestricted medical education grant from
The Desert Foot - The Annual High Risk Diabetic Foot Conference for VA Podiatrists and Healthcare Professionals
Join our nationally recognized faculty for this dynamic half-day program, Clinical Considerations for Creating a Functional Wound Bed: Debridement and Beyond consisting of didactic lectures (CME) and hands-on skill labs centered on evidence-based and best practices for wound care. Lecture topics include, wound bed preparation (eg, debridement, infection identification, treatment, moisture control and wound edge effect), technologies to facilitate wound closure (eg, growth factors, SIS technology, NPWT and moist wound healing practices) and other interventions to assist with creating a functional, well-vascularized wound bed leading to re-epithelialization and subsequent healing.

DESCRIPTION

New at Desert Foot 2015: Join our nationally recognized faculty for this dynamic half-day program, “Clinical Considerations for Creating a Functional Wound Bed: Debridement and Beyond” consisting of didactic lectures (CME) and hands-on skill labs centered on evidence-based and best practices for wound care. Lecture topics include, wound bed preparation (eg, debridement, infection identification and moisture control, wound edge effect), and technologies to facilitate wound closure (eg, growth factors, SIS technology, NPWT, moist wound healing practices); interventions to assist with creating a functional, well-vascularized wound bed leading to reepithelialization and subsequent healing.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Describe the different types of debridement (ie, surgical, sharp, enzymatic, mechanical, biological & autolysis)
  • Identify and treat infected wounds (eg, antimicrobial dressings, debridement)
  • Demonstrate safe and effective debridement skills (ie, sharp and enzymatic) on an animal specimen
  • Demonstrate proper dosing, prescribing and application of collagenase
  • Demonstrate appropriate use of wound closure and extracellular matrix formation interventions (ie, NPWT, PDGF           and SIS technology)
