Do you ever feel helpless and frustrated in caring for patients at end of life who suffer from horrific, unavoidable wounds? Have you ever been told there is nothing else you can do for a patient who is at end of life? That simply is NOT true! Maintaining hope, comfort and dignity is by far one of the most important things we can do for our patients in relieving their suffering. Wounds caused by cancer, vascular insufficiency or skin failure are overwhelming for patients and caregivers. This seminar will provide an in-depth approach to palliative wound care, exploring options to care for patients with chronic wounds, fistulas, fungating wounds and terminal Kennedy ulcers. You will become prepared to care for those patients suffering from challenging wounds at end of life with confidence, compassion and knowledge.

Wound pictures from actual patients will be shared and case studies will be discussed to drive home important points. You will learn based on the different etiologies and presentations, how to choose the best dressing, when debridement is appropriate and formulary creation that will be helpful to your organization. There will be “hands-on” opportunities to test out the different types of wound care dressings available, as well as the latest alternative homeopathic treatment options. This in-depth seminar is “useable” information that you can easily apply in caring for your most complex wound patients and quickly allows you to become a valuable resource for your team.

  4. Plan for management challenges that can present with complex fistulas.
  5. Prepare for the emotional and psychological effects of end of life wounds for patients and families.
