Course Summary

Skin is the body's largest organ, and it serves as a vital shield of armor for the other organs. Protecting the skin is critical to maintaining good health and quality of life. Regardless of the cause, once chronic wounds affect the skin, patients suffer both physically and emotionally. Medical professionals are called upon to develop skin care and wound prevention strategies to ensure long-term patient skin health and to identify risk factors before they have a negative effect on their patients.
