Managing The Non-Healing Wound

Program description

Learn about the factors that contribute to impaired healing and interventions to move the non-healing wound toward closure. This session will review the significance of wound etiology, systemic and local factors that affect wound closure and focus on four major barriers to wound healing identified by the acronym TIME:
T = Tissue nonviable or deficient
I = Infection or inflammation
M = Moisture imbalance
E = Edge of wound non-advancing or undermined.


Objectives

  • Differentiate normal (acute) wound healing from chronic wound healing.
  • Discuss factors that contribute to impaired healing in the chronic wound.
  • Identify the TIME principles of wound bed preparation to include: Tissue nonviable or deficient, Infection or inflammation, Moisture imbalance and Edge of wound non-advancing or undermined.
