With an ageing population it is estimated these numbers will rise. Although wound management principles are touched on briefly in undergraduate nursing education programs\, often only the basics are covered. In addition\, new wound dressings are advancing and becoming more complex. \nA comprehensive assessment of the person and their wound is vital to direct person-centred treatment. An understanding of common wound types and their management which are seen in everyday practice are also important. Nurses must stay abreast of the latest knowledge\, tools and wound management therapies to facilitate evidence-based person-centred practice. This comprehensive study day will provide clarity and useful information to incorporate and succeed in the person-centred wound management delivered in the busy modern nurses’ practice. \nThis workshop will incorporate the principles of wound management for the following wound types: \n\nSkin tears\nPressure injuries\nMalignant wounds\nSurgical wounds\nLeg ulcers – venous\, arterial\, mixed\nDiabetic related foot ulcers\nBurns\n\nLearning Outcomes \nSkin Anatomy\, Physiology & Wound Prevention    \n\nIdentify the anatomy of the skin & associated structures\nState the main functions of skin & its importance in the body’s defence mechanisms\nIdentify health promotion & evidence based wound prevention strategies\nDisplay an understanding of the physiology of normal wound repair & the body’s response\nIdentify common wound types found in the person with multiple co-morbidities\n\nWound Management \n\nRecognise physiological differences between acute & chronic wounds & demonstrate knowledge of common wound types\nIdentify factors that affect wound healing & strategies to minimise their impact\nRecognise further investigations that may be indicated\nIdentify when referral to specialist services are indicated\n\nThe Importance of Assessment \n\nExplain the importance & process of undertaking a person-centred holistic assessment in Wound Management\nUndertake assessment of the clinical characteristics of the wound bed & surrounding skin in consideration of the T.I.M.E principles e.g. dimensions; grading; exudate-amount; type & colour\, odour; wound edge appearance; wound related pain\nRecognise wound bed tissue types\, exudate & wound edge issues\nIdentify signs & symptoms of local & spreading wound infection\nUnderstand how biofilms impact on wound healing and the importance of mechanical wound debridement\n\nWound Dressing Selection \n\nUnderstand basic dressing types & functionality\nRecognise key dressing types & when to use in practice\nApply the principles of wound bed preparation in dressing selection e.g. supporting autolysis; managing infection & inflammation\, moisture balance & addressing wound edge status\nDiscuss care of the peri-wound skin & prevention of contact dermatitis\, skin stripping due to adhesives & other complications\nSet local wound goals e.g. to protect\, maintain moisture balance\, aid autolytic debridement when clinically indicated\nDiscuss risk assessment for aseptic technique type (standard versus surgical) as part of infection prevention & control applied to their local care delivery setting\nRecognise when the use of advance wound therapies is required\n\n\nDATE AND TIME: \nTuesday\, 23 July 2019 \n  \nStart Time: \n– Registration commences at 8:30am \n– Event will begin at 9:00am \nEnd Time: 5:00pm \n  \nFood and Refreshments \n– Morning Tea \n– Lunch \n– Afternoon tea \n*please contact HealthTimes upon booking if you have any dietary requirements. \n\n\nLOCATION: \nHotel George Williams\n317-325 George St\, Brisbane\, QLD 4000 \n\n URL:https://www.woundinnovations.com.au/event/foundations-of-wound-management-brisbane-workshop/ LOCATION:George Williams Hotel\, 317-325 George St\, Brisbane\, QLD\, Australia CATEGORIES:Fundamentals of Wound Management ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.woundinnovations.com.au/wp-content/uploads/FoundationsofWoundManagementBrisbaneHealthTimesevent.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Australia/Adelaide:20190730T083000 DTEND;TZID=Australia/Adelaide:20190730T170000 DTSTAMP:20190519T142930 CREATED:20190408T084546Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190408T085015Z UID:4967-1564475400-1564506000@www.woundinnovations.com.au SUMMARY:Foundations of Wound Management Adelaide DESCRIPTION:Designed for busy nurses\, the Foundations of Wound Management workshop provides comprehensive\, easy to understand principles and tools to support evidence-based person-centred wound management practice.\nBOOK: https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=493016& \n\n\n\nDate: Tuesday July 30\, 2019\nVenue: Education Development Centre – Hindmarsh SA\, 5007\nPrice: Early bird price $199 available until May 31 | Full: $250\nTickets strictly limited\n\n\n\nThere are almost half a million Australians affected by chronic or slow to heal wounds.

So what’s planned for 2019 you ask?\nA brand new venue that takes unique to the next level\, a social program delivered in DFA’s relaxed style\, an interactive exhibition and most importantly\, future-focused content with an emphasis on the practical you use every day. \nAnd it gets even bigger\, because we’re bringing the “Olympics of the Diabetic Foot” Downunder! \nYou heard right\, to follow the renowned International Symposium on Diabetic Foot held in the Netherlands in May 2019 (the largest diabetic foot conference in the world held every 4 years) we have secured not one\, not two\, but three international keynote speakers. Who are not only keynoting at the International Sympoium\, but are also busy writing four chapters of the new 2019 International (IWGDF) diabetic foot guidelines also released at the symposium. \nFeaturing a diverse lineup of international and national keynote speakers\, plenary sessions and interactive workshops\, we are covering all areas of diabetic foot disease including clinical practice and scientific evidence. Over two days at Howard Smith Wharves\, our delegates will enjoy the latest in research and practice\, and meet with you\, our industry partners offering the latest products and services. With a robust interactive social program from Sunday to Tuesday\, we’re delivering a conference in relaxed style. \n URL:https://www.woundinnovations.com.au/event/diabetic-foot-australia-conference-2019/ LOCATION:Howard Smith Wharves\, 5 Boundary St\, Brisbane\, Queensland\, 4000\, Australia CATEGORIES:Conference ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.woundinnovations.com.au/wp-content/uploads/DFA-Conferencewallpaper.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="Diabetic%20Foot%20Australia":MAILTO:nationaloffice@diabeticfootaustralia.org END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
