Debridement is known and described by many wound care experts as an essential process of wound bed preparation that promotes wound healing. This workshop will allow participants to become familiar with debridement, including surgical/sharp, enzymatic, autolytic, chemical, biosurgical, and mechanical techniques.

Participants will gain knowledge about wound evaluation, the goals of debridement (when and why), limits, dangers, and related measures. Attendees will be able to practice sharp debridement and learn the necessary practical skills to integrate this essential practice in their wound care management tool kit.

There will be 2 workshops on debridement
