Care Improvement Strategies
Purpose: This webinar will provide nurses with information and strategies to implement evidence-based practices to prevent and/or manage wounds in advanced illness.

Caring for patients with advanced illness is complex and requires a comprehensive interprofessional approach to optimize well-being for the patient and their caregivers. Advanced illness is often accompanied by increased risk of chronic debility, advancing disease, multi-system organ failure, the potential for skin breakdown and/or the presence of wounds. Nurses, who work as members of interprofessional teams, should be knowledgeable about evidence-based strategies to prevent and treat wounds in advanced illness.
