Goodbye Wet-to-Dry Wound Care: The Good, the Bad, the Options presented by Dr. Don Wollheim MD, FAPWCA, WCC, DWC

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.

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.
