Preparing a wound for healing is key to ensure chronic wounds convert to healing wounds. The TIME mnemonic for wound bed preparation assists clinicians and bedside nurses to think critically when making decisions on treatment options. This webinar uses wound photographs paired with terminology to interpret what the wound is communicating. After reviewing the photos, various treatment options will be discussed.
The photos presented will be of various conditions and will include fungating lesions, demarcating phalanges, unstable eschar, inflammatory cancers, etc. Even clinicians already familiar with the TIME wound bed preparation framework will likely find the photos and review of various conditions useful to their practice. The attendees will use the TIME mnemonic to evaluate a number of complex and chronic wound cases.
