Introduction to Wound Management: More than a Bandage Solution

Chronic wounds is an under-recognised public health issue, with more than 400,000 Australians suffering from a chronic wound at any given time and although many wounds can be successfully healed through adopting best practice measures, up to 70% of chronic wound patients do not receive appropriate treatment.

The majority of chronic wounds are managed in the community environment rather than the hospital setting, with a steady increase in requests and enquiries coming to pharmacists. However, inconsistencies in wound management practice and outdated methods of treatment are contributing factors to poor health outcomes. As one of the most accessible healthcare professionals, it is important pharmacists are trained to recognise and successfully manage wound conditions to ensure optimal health outcomes for the patient.

By the end of this one-day workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the anatomy and physiology of the skin
  • Describe the process of wound repair and those factors which inhibit healing
  • Recognise key components of wound care such as assessment, cleansing, dressing selection and choice of compression device
  • Identify common wound types seen in pharmacy their treatment principles
