CS112: Vitiligo: Taking the Surgical Route
Vitiligo is a long-term and non-contagious skin condition that causes the skin to lose its normal color and affects about 1% of the world’s population. Vitiligo can affect a person’s daily life with a negative body image and depression. Melanocyte Keratinocyte Transplantation Procedure (MKTP) is a surgical treatment option for patients with Vitiligo. Melanocytes and Keratinocytes are taken from an area not affected by vitiligo of the patient’s skin and transferred to a recipient site after a solution is prepared. The nurse’s role in this Vitiligo surgical option includes assisting with MKTP, performing cell separation, applying specialized dressings and continuity of care with the patient.
Learning Objectives:
Identify MKTP as a surgical route for Vitiligo and the importance of the nurses role from patient selection to continued continuity of care months to years after surgery.

CS122: Atypical Leg Wounds and Dermatological Nursing: Climbing to New Heights (AANP)
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.
