Wound Care Management and Advanced Suturing is a two-day course.
Family Physicians see a variety of wounds in daily practice. Proper care and management should be addressed in an evidence-based manner and guidelines should be followed. This CME course is designed to help develop insight and “hands-on” skills to achieve the very best attainable wound care management and wound closure results for patients. The approach is to challenge and to encourage the participants to expand their expertise in the management and closure of more difficult wounds and large tissue excisions. Although basic wound management and wound closure will be reviewed to assure that everyone has a similar platform to build from in the rest of the course, it is assumed that participants will have basic knowledge and experience in suturing. Advanced topics will include tendon repair, “plasties” and advancement flaps, correction of common problems like dog ears, and skin grafting. Emergency physicians, General Surgeons, Family Physicians, Internists, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians Assistants, and other clinicians will find this skill training essential to develop their present abilities to a higher level.
