Assessment and quantification of skin color is important to healthcare as color is one indicator of overall health. The ability to note changes in skin color can mean life or death. Professionals need to understand the skin’s mechanism as it relates to ethnic differences, as well as unique skin-related challenges. This session will review structural, physiological, functional and cultural differences in skin of color, assessment techniques, common skin conditions and cutaneous complications. (This is a pre-recorded session from the 2015 Wild On Wounds National Conference.)
