Suzie Ehmann, PT, DPT, PhD(c), CWS, CLWT, CLT-LANA​ and Heather Hettrick, PT, PhD, CWS, AWCC, CLT-LANA, CLWT​ discuss what wound care clinicains need to know about lymphedema, lipedema, and managing swelling.

Amanda Estapa, ACNP-BC, CWS, FACCWS, DAPWCA, Dot M. Weir, RN, CWON, CWS and Colin J. Traynor, DPM, CWSP employ a holistic approach to wound management. They consider different NPWT modalities for outpatient care and look at case outcomes from a variety of wound types.

Emily Greenstein, APRN, CNP, CWON-AP, FACCSW and Ralph J. Napolitano, Jr. DPM, CWSP, FACFAS discuss the importance of recognizing the economic and patient quality of life impact of periwound skin damage, and explore some of the main factors that affect periwound integrity. Then they'll examine the role of novel silicone-acrylic drape with negative pressure wound therapy in patients with periwound skin breakdown.

Todd Shaffett, DNP, FNP, CWS, FACCWS, DAPWCA and Dot Weir, RN, CWON, CWS will identify proper NPWT dressing selection for patient’s needs, examine strategies on managing NPWT in the outpatient setting and discuss how to facilitate patient-centered health education for patients with home-based NPWT to improve the safety of home treatment and patient experience.

Christopher Barrett, DPM, CWS, MAPWCA and Ralph Napolitano, DPM, CWSP, FACFAS discusss the clinical burden of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) on patient quality of life and economics. They examine the clinical efficacy, safety, and cost-effectiveness of various advanced therapies for DFU management (dressings, negative pressure wound therapy, hybrid drapes) and how to develop an effective strategy for managing complex DFUs and preventing infections.

Luis G. Fernandez, MD, KHS, KCOEG, FACS, FASAS, FCCP, FCCM, FICS, Paul J. Kim, DPM, MS, FACFAS and Marc R. Matthews, MD, MS, MCG, FASC, FASGS discuss the latest analysis of NPWTi-d, incorporation of efficient fluid estimation systems and dressing technologies and the clinical application of NPWTi-d for effective wound cleansing and management.

Michael N. Desvigne, MD, FACS, CWS, FACCWS and Dot Weir, RN, CWON, CWS discuss how to examine the clinical impact of Collagen with Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose (ORC) and Silver in the wound environment. They will explain the clinical significance of negative pressure wound therapy and determine when to use Collagen with Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose (ORC) and Silver Dressings and NPWT and who to use it on. They will also examine, via cases, the clinical outcomes from combining Collagen with Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose (ORC) and Silver with NPWT. 

Christopher Barrett, DPM and Dot Weir, RN, CWON, CWS review patient cases who utilized disposable mechanically-powered negative pressure wound therapy.

Emily Greenstein, APRN, CNP, CWON-AP, FACCWS and Terry Treadwell, MD, FACS, FAAWC explain the critical importance of compression therapy as the cornerstone of VLU management, review best practices in compression therapy and skin and wound care to optimize VLU management, explore clinical decision-making prior to implementing compression to manage edema across the spectrum, evaluate the science and clinical application of 2-layer compression therapy, and investigate the use of compression wraps to manage edema associated with diabetic ulcers.

Paul J. Kim, DPM, MS, FACFAS, Alisha Oropallo, MD FACS, FSVS, FAWPCA, FABWMS and Devinder Singh, MD discuss harnessing innovations in negative pressure wound therapy.
