Wound Management for HBPC Providers
Description

Chronic wounds can be a challenge for home-based primary care (HBPC) patients and may result in increased hospital admissions, lengths of stay, and higher healthcare costs. Unfortunately, many HBPC practices do not have dedicated staff to assess and treat wounds in a consistent manner, often resulting in wound management challenges.

  1. Discuss unique provider challenges in treating wounds of home-based primary care patients.
