Wound Care Boot Camp / Skin & Nutrition and its Importance in the Healing Process (February)
Tuesday, February 6, 2024 (9:00 AM - 2:30 PM) (EST)
OCHCH and Archangel Wound Management present a webinar exploring the importance of assessing and evaluating skin in any wound, and the value of nutrition as a foundational factor in proper wound healing.
This webinar is being offered twice: 9 AM to 2:30 PM on January 31 and February 6. The agenda and timing for each day is identical.
Clinicians are increasingly encountering complex chronic wounds and patients with comorbidities. Home Health conditions often lack the necessary training to effectively manage these cases, emphasizing the need to bridge the expertise gap for successful outcomes.
OCHCH has partnered with Archangel of Mercy Wound Management to bring a complete wound case management education program for its active and prospective members specifically designed for home health agencies. Their ten-module, proprietary wound care and ostomy course called “STEPP into Healing" has been recognized as a critical innovation in wound care and has been taught to hundreds of home health clinicians across the country. The STEPP Method provides clinicians and therapists in the field with an easy to utilize tool that aid in evaluation, assessing and charting wounds effectively.
Transform your clinicians from being mere Order Takers to effective Wound Care Problem Solvers!
“Wound Care Boot Camp" and "Skin & Nutrition” are the first two of ten modules in the complete STEPP Into Healing Wound Education program that is offered to active OCHCH Members as complimentary education programs! Agencies that wish to register clinicians for modules #3 through #10 will receive a 40% discounted rate that includes 20 hours of wound care education and CEU’s! Contact OCHCH (email@example.com) for more information.
This online event includes 4.0 FREE CEU’s for following disciplines: RN/LPN, PT/PT-A’s, and OT/COTA’s
