Nurses for Nurses CPD Travel

Synopsis

Keeping the moisture balance for wound healing is an integral part of a wound management plan. Moist not macerated is best practice. However, this can be very challenging and managing a dry wound can be as hard as managing a wet wound. Oedema to the surrounding tissue can further complicate the healing process. What causes oedema, why do some wounds have more exudate than others?

This workshop explores wound exudate and oedema management. We will start with exploring both these topics and apply this to clinical practice.

The second part of this workshop is an interactive session on dressings to manage exudate and adjunct therapies for oedema management that can be applied in different clinical environments.

Enjoy some fabulous food

The Coast is a place where night bites, hatted restaurants, street eats and breweries are all served with a side of alfresco. A place where five-star feasting means dusting the sand from your feet; where surfers swap their boards for a latte at sun-up and little ones break from beachside frolics to feast on epic spreads of fish and chips.

Aged Care Fundamentals | Gold Coast 2022

Louise is not only amazing, engaging and captivating speakers but her knowledge is extensive, relevant and up to date. What a privilege to have met her. Having the medical reps present their products, some having fun with interactive games, and then answer questions was unique and relevant, I hope this will be an ongoing format.
