June 28, 2017- Skilled Wound Care
That’s the best way to describe our most recent Skin, Wound, & Ostomy Course, held May 31-June 2, 2017, at California State University East Bay Oakland Center. We welcomed 101 attendees - a full house!
Over the course of three days, students learned about all skin, wound, and ostomy issues in a variety of care settings. What’s more, they were brought up to speed on current regulations and standard practice in post-acute settings.
Our SWOC course focuses on a diverse approach to care: students learned the biology behind wound care, how to assess and prevent wounds, how to identify risks in patient care. They also learned which management and treatment choices were best suited to various conditions, and covered all the relevant documentation so that they could comply with the best practices of health care at the state and federal level.
