Skin health & wound care for children
Our free service specific/specialist days promote the best practices in skin health and wound healing
Caring for children with a chronic illness or disability can pose many challenges to healthcare professionals. Frequently this includes the risks associated with maintaining skin integrity and wound healing when faced with complex factors that can impact on patient outcomes.
This advanced study day will explore some of the factors that need to be considered when assessing children with complex skin and wound care needs and will also provide insight into managing specific conditions such as pilonidal sinus and pressure ulceration.
