Shield HealthCare invites you to join us on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 for a free webinar: Wet-to-Dry: Substandard Wound Care – Presented by Dr. Don Wollheim, MD, FAPWCA, WCC, DWC of the Wound Care Education Institute.

Webinar Overview:

Wet-to-dry dressings may be appropriate in some circumstances, but the evidence reveals they offer substandard care. There are better alternatives.

Numerous studies and health care guidelines have repeatedly deemed wet-to-dry gauze dressings as a substandard practice, painful, labor intensive and not cost effective. Despite all the findings, wet-to-dry gauze dressings are still one of the most frequently ordered wound care dressing in the United States. We will review indications and contraindications of wet-to-dry dressings and offer options and alternatives for clinicians to utilize for wound treatment.

Webinar Objectives:

Upon completion, the participant will be able to:

1. Discuss indications and contraindications for Wet-to-Dry Dressings
2. Choose evidence based wound debridement options based upon wound characteristics

1 CE Contact Hour Available (Provided by the Wound Care Education Institute)
