A systematic approach to wound care staff training can result in a positive outcome for therapists, staff, their clinic, and most importantly, their clients. Using multiple examples, this course examines key elements (role of multidisciplinary team, documentation and reimbursement, prevention, wound assessment, and wound treatment) of effective education and introduces strategies for making wound care learning engaging and fun to support delivered wound care services. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
