S066 - Wounds and Ulcers: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Monday, February 19; 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Formulate an expanded differential diagnosis for wounds seen in clinical practice
  • Recognize skin signs of systemic disease as it relates to wounds and wound care
  • Utilize technology, pharmacology, and appropriate devices to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of acute and chronic wounds


Wound Care is dermatology at its finest. As we discuss the scope of wound care issues in the US and worldwide, and the critical role of dermatologists in this field, we will follow with excellent presentations covering clinical and practical pearls for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of acute and chronic wounds. We will make this session lively and interactive with a panel discussion on the improvement of quality performance halfway through and attempt to make the final session on the prevention of venous leg ulcers hands-on as possible.
