Warning: A simple pressure ulcer culprit could be right under your nose. 

Don't underestimate what some well-intended medications can do to increase pressure ulcer risk -- especially with OASIS C around the corner. In this 1-hour audio conference Wayne Atkinson, CGP, will review and examine specific medications associated with pressure ulcers and wound healing. He'll explore medications ranging from those that affect cognition to urinary incontinence, plus he'll share practical tips on risk reduction strategies and procedures your HHA can implement to improve physician communications concerning patient risk reduction.

Here's what you will learn:

  • A list of key medications that can affect the overall risk of pressure ulcers and wound care healing.
