The management of wounds is complicated by not only the diversity of wounds but also the variety of wound care products now available to clinicians. In order to optimize patient outcomes and effectively influence wound treatment plans, nurses must be knowledgeable about wound etiology and current evidence-based best practices for their management. This activity will focus on the management of wounds. Specifically, the goals of wound care and basic management principles will be reviewed. Moist wound therapy dressings and goals will also be detailed.
After completing this continuing education activity, nurses will be able to cite the goals of wound care, identify the basic principles of wound management, and select appropriate evidence-based wound care strategies to improve outcomes for patients with wounds.
