Post-Conference: Debridement

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

Additional fees apply.

This course was developed for healthcare providers to learn safe and effective methods of debridement. Debridement can be accomplished surgically (instrument/sharp), chemically with enzymes, mechanically, biologically with use of maggot therapy, or by autolysis. Each modality has advantages, disadvantages, indications for use, and risks. A review of anatomy and physiology, legal and safety factors, potential complications, and techniques of debridement will be presented. Debridement techniques will be practiced in a skills lab setting utilizing porcine models. Upon completion of this course, a certificate of attendance will be awarded and the participants will be encouraged to return to their practice settings for hands-on patient experience and competency demonstration.
