Incorporating Physical Therapy in the Comprehensive Management of Patients with Wounds

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Wound care practitioners frequently advocate for the concept of interdisciplinary care for wound patients, but may not recognize the benefits of including a physical therapist (PT) on the wound care team. As rehabilitation specialists, PTs are acutely aware of returning individuals to functional independence and facilitating wound repair can be critical in this process. This session will focus on how PTs engage in wound care from the operation of outpatient PT-based wound care clinics to comprehensive inpatient acute and rehabilitation facilities. Adjunctive devices that promote edema reduction, pressure modification, reduce bioburden, and facilitate repair and function will be discussed along with the PTs role in more traditional forms of wound management
