WOUND CARE MANAGEMENT

 

Wounds are common problems for people throughout the world. Without proper treatment, significant disability can result. A good understanding of basic wound care principles will help your patients to heal as quickly as possible with the best outcome.

This program provides practical information for evaluating patients with wounds. Treatments using techniques and supplies accessible to rural health care providers are discussed. By understanding the principles described in this program, a patient such as the one shown here- who accidentally cut off his fingertips with a saw can be successfully treated.

 

WOUND SIGNS AND SYMPOMS

  • The most common symptoms of a wound are pain, swelling, and bleeding. The amount of pain, swelling, and bleeding of a wound depends upon the location of the injury and the mechanism of injury.

  • Some large lacerations may not hurt very much if they are located in an area that has few nerve endings, while abrasions of fingertips (which has a greater number of nerves) can be very painful, for example, a paper cut.

  • Some lacerations may bleed more if the area involved has a greater number of blood vessels, for example, the scalp and face.

HOW TO MANAGE WOUND CARE?

 

  • Health care professionals are faced with daily challenges related to effective wound management and the assessment and treatment of a variety of wounds, such as chronic wounds (long lasting ulcers or sores on the skin), venous ulcers, arterial ulcers/ischemic ulcers, diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers and combination ulcers.

  • The attainment of comprehensive wound management skills requires health care continuing education that incorporates diverse, evidence-based information, best practice proficiency and collaborative opportunities across health disciplines.

  • This program of wound care courses provides a self-paced learning environment combining interactive activities with in-depth discussions, concepts and understanding of wound management and its challenges. Application of theory integrates teaching tools and problem-based learning develops a broad range of essential wound management care components.
