About the Event
TWO DAY PROGRAM
Day One - The term debridement often means different things to different health professionals. To the surgeon it means down to a bleeding base, to a wound nurse consultant it is removing as much non viable tissue without causing bleeding and to some nurses it just means using a sharp instrument. In this program we will discuss dressings that aid autolytic debridement, wound hygiene and the ethical issues behind your decision making before embarking on dissecting a pigs trotter to gain a greater understanding of anatomy within the wounds you may encounter that require some form of debridement.

EDach category of dressings will be explore, with practical, hands on workshop. We will also related this back to your workplace with an audit of your products and those that are appropriate for the types of wound you see.
