Great wound care education is key part of public health!
The third week of October is National Health Education Week (sponsored by the Society for Public Health Education). We’re excited to see it - because for Skilled Wound Care, EVERY week is focused on health education. Whether we’re offering some of the best wound care education courses to nurses across the country, or whether our providers are helping nursing homes better care for their residents, education is a key element of our mission.
And this month, we have some very exciting news. Want to find out what it is?
Tune in to Skilled Wound Care’s Facebook feed on Thursday, October 26 at 12pm PST for a LIVE special announcement from Skilled Wound Care’s Dr. Anvar. Don’t miss out - it’s a big deal!
Skilled Wound Care is a mobile surgical practice committed to transforming the chronic wound care model in nursing facilities. Wound care experts make weekly bedside visits to patients in long-term care facilities, avoiding transfers to hospitals or clinics. Our expert physicians give patients the most up-to-date and effective wound treatments, and educate facility staff on how to help patients continue to heal quickly and effectively between visits. This model of collaborative care allows SWC’s physicians to improve patients’ lives and health outcomes, to empower nursing staff, and to raise public awareness. Skilled Wound Care, along with its nurse and nursing home partners, is working every day to positively transform traditional nursing home wound care.
