This 60 minute eCPD tutorial provides an overview of the principles of wound healing and how we can manipulate the process to improve wound healing. The stages of wound healing are discussed along with factors which inhibit wound healing. The initial assessment of wounds including involvement of critical structures such as joints and body cavities is covered followed by basic treatment principles and wound closure.
Bandages and casts are discussed during a brief separate tutorial, which covers selection of the correct bandaging material to create an appropriate bandage, on a case by case basis, using the five functions of a bandage as a guide.
