Webinar Description:
Draining wounds are problematic for both clinicians and patients alike. Wound exudate carries the potential to harm the wound bed and the surrounding skin, exponentially adding costs to the organizations and insurers, and often leads to patient self-isolation from friends and family. This session will explore the components of exudate and address the various methods to control wound exudate in a variety of clinical situations and settings.

Target Audience: Nurses, physical therapists, dietitians, and other healthcare professionals interested in wound care.
