Course Summary

Although many types of wounds are easily treated, some require specialized care in order to resolve or treat the primary cause and to avoid complications. Health clinicians specializing in wound prevention and treatment focus on patients with an acute or chronic skin injury, related disease, and medical treatment. Increasingly, wound care specialists are adopting a holistic approach to treatment, coordinating efforts between interdisciplinary team members to ensure that all aspects of a patient's physical and mental health are met during the acute and long-term phases of the treatment plan. This is the fifth in a six-part series on wound care.
