Our highly-anticipated WOUNDPOSIUM is back, for one day only, on September 6th, 2019 in Los Angeles. Don’t miss it!
This one-day course is a deep dive into how to treat, identify, stage, and heal wounds. Pressure injuries cost the US medical system more than $11 billion every year, and lead to tens of thousands of lawsuits. What’s worse, they are estimated to cause about 60,000 patient deaths every year.
Almost everyone in the medical field encounters pressure injuries at some point: 2.5 million Americans are affected by pressure injuries every year. That’s an astonishingly high rate: for comparison, it’s four times as many people as die of heart disease annually.
At Woundposium, you’ll learn what we’ve developed on the front lines of wound healing, including the most cutting-edge techniques, compliance standards and procedures, and important ways to PREVENT pressure injuries before they become a problem.
Here’s what some of our past students have said about our training:
“I really enjoyed the lectures. They were very applicable to my work environment and will improve patient care.”
“It was a pleasure to attend... I'm very glad that I was here and learned a lot of helpful information that I can and will use to make my patients better.”
“Thank you for the exceptional knowledge that I can take back with me to provide not only adequate wound care and patient education but info and tools and methods to make a difference in someone's life by helping them HEAL! I am now a more effective nurse due to the training I've been given and guidance that I received. I can show others better ways to help heal our wounded and broken patients. Give them a better quality of life.”
Whether you’re in a long-term skilled nursing facility, a hospital, hospice and palliative care, or any other field that encounters pressure injuries, you won’t want to miss WOUNDPOSIUM 2019.
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.
