Wound Debridement Certificate

(On-line 6.5CE hrs + 2.5 CE hrs Live Workshops, 6-8:30pm, 9CE hrs total!)

Debridement is an essential component of wound care and many options are available to clinicians today. This course starts with on-line pre-course work that sets the foundation for a variety of debridement approaches. On-line training is then followed by evening workshops to get you engaged with hands-on, practical training performing conservative sharp, enzymatic, chemical, mechanical, and maggot debridement therapy on simulated wounds! Learn to score and apply enzymes to eschar, excise necrotic tissue, chemically debridement epibole or hypergranulation, gently buff slough from granulated areas, saucerize a wound and shave surrounding callus, and even experience how to apply live maggot debridement therapy*!

All supplies are provided for these interactive and hands-on workshops.

* Application of live maggots subject to availability
