Skin and Wound Care for Hospice Patients
Overcome Skin And Wound Challenges For Hospice Patients
Hospice patients often face the risk for skin breakdown or pressure ulcer formation, and many hospice patients present with existing breakdown, fungating tumors, or radiodermatitis. Now-a-days providers are gearing up to health care regulations and giving primary importance to prevention of medical “errors”.
But there is remarkable perplexity regarding the balance between client centered care and adherence to regulatory guidelines. This webinar will identify the guidelines for client-centered care that is in compliance with regulatory guidelines to enable cost effective wound care.
Join this 60-minute audio session presented by Dorothy Doughty, MN, RN, CWOCN, FAAN who will help you understand guidelines regarding individualized preventive skin care. She’ll also help you to understand what to expect when documenting for care goals and strategies and get a clear picture for appropriate wound management in a compromised patient population.
