CS312 – Atypical Leg Wounds and Dermatological Nursing: Climbing to New Heights

Leg wounds are often classified based on their etiologies, such as neuropathy, vascular insufficiency, and prolonged pressure. However, not all wounds fall neatly into these categories. It is estimated that approximately 10% of chronic leg wounds are considered atypical, meaning they are the result of an etiology other than neuropathy, vascular insufficiency, or pressure. The purpose of this presentation will be to provide health care clinicians at any level with information to enhance their understanding of atypical leg wounds and to apply principles of wound care toward treatment. Target audience will include nurses at all levels of licensure including but not limited to LPN/LVN, RN, and APRN.

Learning Objectives:
Identify atypical lower leg wounds based on assessment and clinical manifestations.
Differentiate between the different types of wound dressings and their mechanisms of action including clinical application and frequency of usage.
Explain selected topical drug therapy with mechanism of action including clinical application, frequency of usage, and adverse reactions.
