The World of Wounds for LNAs and MAs - Postponed

This event has been postponed.

LNAs and MAs are often the “eyes and ears” of the nurse. Because they practice at the point of care, they are perfectly positioned to provide important information that helps nurses determine the current status of patients. Join us at this learning activity that will feature nurses who are experts in wound care. They will offer insight and knowledge related to the most recent updates in clinical practice associated with such conditions as incontinence associated dermatitis, ostomy care, wound vac application, pressure injury prevention, turning and repositioning, wound measurement, photography and other important topics. Attendance at this event will enhance the learner’s ability to provide the most recent evidence based practice to this vulnerable patient population.
