Wound Management for Nurses
There are many reasons why patients may present with multiple wounds which will require assessment and stabilisation. Wound care forms an essential part of patient management, the veterinary nurse is often directly involved and plays an integral part in the assessment, treatment and monitoring of the patient with wounds. This webinar will review the types of wounds and how they are classified, the physiology of wound healing and participants will ultimately feel confident in the choice of treatments available through discussion of principles of wound care such as lavage, debridement and dressings.
