Cost-Effective Strategies for Wound Care Management

January 30, 2020

Participants will hear from three subject matter experts. The nurse subject matter expert will review basic pathophysiology and wound care treatments to augment and reinforce participant knowledge base.  He will also review current practices within his health system. The two pharmacists will offer examples of collaboration in their practice sites and share their strategies to use cost-effective therapy. Participants will have a chance to raise questions and/or provide comments based on their own experiences during the question and answer session.
