The Impact of Medical Comorbidities on Wound Healing: A Focus on Autoimmune Diseases

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

This session will review the link between wound healing and a number of different autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma. Many patients being treated for wounds are not aware that they also have an autoimmune disease or that the disease may be impacting their wound healing. Alternatively, others are aware of the diagnosis, but are not being aggressively treated for the disorder. The wounds frequently associated with these diseases and the specific physiologic and medical factors related to delayed wound healing will be discussed.

This continuing nursing education activity awards up to 0.25 pharmacology hours.
