Program: Presentation and Q&A
Chronic venous leg ulcers are the most common wounds seen in general practice. Their management can be both challenging and time consuming. This session will aim to enhance understanding of the condition, its presentation, complications and management at a general practice level.
Effective management of chronic ulcers involves the assessment of both the ulcer and the patient. The essential requirements of management are to debride the ulcer where necessary, choose dressings that maintain adequate moisture balance, apply graduated compression bandage after evaluation of the arterial circulation and address the patient’s concerns, such as pain and offensive wound discharge. All of these considerations will be addressed in this education event.
GPs will also gain insight into tertiary care pathways and strategies that exist to benefit their patients who may suffer from chronic venous ulcers. Moreover, there have been paradigm shifts in the treatment techniques available for the management of chronic venous ulcers, which will be of interest to general practitioners in terms of their ongoing professional development.
This educational session has the potential to raise awareness of the significance of chronic wounds and garner support from the general practice sector to improve the outcomes for people who are living with or at risk of developing this condition.
- Develop a safe assessment and investigation pathway to facilitate the diagnosis of chronic wounds and their likely aetiologies
