Join Dr. Mary Litchford, PhD, RDN, LDN to learn how to assess strategies for nutrition and wound healing.
There are no laboratory tests sensitive enough to predict whether the patient is receiving enough dietary protein, so how do you determine if your nutrition interventions for wound care are working? The focus of this webinar is to assess the effectiveness of your nutrition intervention plan through a global and focused assessment. Learn new strategies to determine if the individual’s nutrient requirements can be met using the nutrition recommendations of the International Clinical Practice Guideline in conjunction with other appropriate disease specific nutrient recommendations.
This is a treasure-trove of nutrition knowledge that includes chapter specific study questions and resources along with suggested activities to reinforce learning.
After completing this continuing education course the learner should be able to:
- Examine the interplay of intrinsic (unchangeable) and extrinsic (changeable) factors that impair wound healing.
- Explore the relationship between evidence of malnutrition and signs of worsening wounds.
- Explore the relationship between evidence of improved nutrition status and signs of healing wounds.
