WoundRounds®, the point-of-care wound management & prevention solution, is hosting a free webinar entitled, Wound Staging: A Practical Guide. The course has been submitted for 1.0 Nursing CEU's.

Although there is heightened industry awareness surrounding pressure ulcers, many healthcare providers lack knowledge of wound formation and few have the skills to properly stage pressure ulcers. “This webinar presents techniques on proper identification and staging, the first step in winning the war on pressure ulcers,” according to Anne Scheurich, RN, CWOCN.
Scheurich adds, “Reducing pressure ulcers are central to the mission of WoundRounds, so we are bringing this valuable education free to participants and offering nurses a no-cost CEU opportunity.” Besides pressure ulcer staging, participants will learn how to identify a Suspected Deep Tissue Injury and explore practical tips for unstageable wounds.
WoundRounds is the point-of-care wound management & prevention solution that empowers nurses to deliver better wound care in less time. Users of WoundRounds report time savings, reduction in facility-acquired pressure ulcers, lower wound care costs, decreased rehospitalizations, and reduced risk and liability. In short, WoundRounds helps providers do more with less.
