Be skin tear aware!
Skin tears are painful and distressing injuries that occur more often than people may realise. This common skin condition affects individuals with increased skin vulnerability and a lack of awareness means they are regularly misidentified, mistreated or even ignored.
By educating yourself, and other members of your team, you can play a key role in helping to reduce the unnecessary pain and suffering caused by skin tears. If you want to learn more on how to improve patient care, take this opportunity to join Dr. Kimberly LeBlanc, a key thought leader within this area, when she shares her insights, knowledge and experience related to skin tears.
These webinars were broadcast last year with a huge success but If you missed them, see below for more info related to what each webinar will cover. Join one or all three of them and do it when it fits your own agenda.
