Winning the battle of skin tears in an aging population

ON DEMAND webinar

Winning the battle of skin tears in an aging population

This April 25th, 2017 webinar overviews a significant challenge that healthcare providers encounter daily.

“Skin tears” may sound like a relatively minor event, but in reality, these injuries can have a significant impact on the quality of patients’ lives in the form of pain, infection, and limited mobility. The incidence of skin tears has been reported to be as high as 1.5 million annually, and with an aging population, this number is likely to go higher. In this webinar, experts will explain how nurses can use an evidence-based approach—including following practice guidelines to assess the wound and select the proper dressing—for managing skin tears and minimizing their negative effects.
