Goodbye Wet-to-Dry Wound Care: The Good, the Bad, the Options presented by Dr. Don Wollheim MD, FAPWCA, WCC, DWC
Numerous studies and health care guidelines have repeatedly deemed wet-to-dry gauze dressings as substandard practice, painful, labor-intensive and not cost-effective. Yet despite the findings, wet-to-dry gauze dressings remain among the most frequently ordered treatments in the United States. This session is presented and written by a general surgeon who will review the indications and contraindications of wet-to-dry dressings and offer options and alternatives for clinicians to utilize for wound treatment.
Upon conclusion participants will be able to:
- Discuss indications and contra-indications for wet-to-dry dressing
- Choose evidence-based wound debridement options based upon wound characteristics
1 CE Contact Hour is available through the Wound Care Education Institute.
Who should attend: Health care professionals including LPN, RN, NP, PT, PTA, OT, OTA, MD/DO, Nurse Managers, Treatment Nurses, Wound Care Team, Clinic Directors, MDS Coordinators, Consultants.
