5 On-Demand Credit Programs: Wound Care & Healing

August 29

HMP, NACCME & Organogenesis, Inc.* present 5 On-Demand Programs

CREDIT FOR EACH OF THESE 5, one-hour PROGRAMS EXPIRES ON NOV. 29, 2019

  1. “New Research & Clinical Applications: Activating Acute Wound Healing Response in Venous Leg Ulcers With Living Cell-based Therapy”

Register here.

Learning Objectives  |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

      1. Discuss how to optimize the effectiveness of cell-based therapies by decreasing protease levels with appropriate wound site preparation
      2. Investigate late-breaking science behind living cell-based therapy shifting chronic non-healing venous leg ulcers into an acute wound healing response
      3. Explore cases of patients treated with living cell-based therapy combined with standard of care

Presenters:  Paul J. Kim, DPM, MS  |  Marjana Tomic-Canic, Ph.D.  |  George J. Koullias, M.D.

2. “A Multi-Faceted Expert’s Approach to Managing Venous Disease & Venous Leg Ulcers” 

Register here.

Learning Objectives  |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

      1. Describe the incidence, financial and clinical burden, and associated comorbidities of venous disease
      2. Explore evidence-based approaches and best practices in managing venous disease and venous leg ulcers
      3. Review challenging cases of venous leg ulcers and practical approaches to management

Presenter: William Marston, M.D.

3. “Examining the Use of Purified Collagen Matrix With Antimicrobial for Treating Chronic Wounds”

Register here.

Learning Objectives  |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

      1. Explain the science of polyhexamethylene biguanide hydrochloride (PHMB) antimicrobial and compare and contrast from other antimicrobials in treating chronic wounds
      2. Review the role of PHMB antimicrobial in managing bioburden and halting the progression from a colonized to a critically colonized wound environment
      3. Explore cases surrounding the use of collagen and PHMB antimicrobial in combination with adjunctive therapy in the management of chronic wounds

Presenters: Ryan H. Fitzgerald, DPM Gregory Schultz, M.D.

4.  “Proactive Biofilm-Based Wound Management”

Register here.

Learning Objectives  |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

      1. Examine a proactive biofilm-based wound management (BBWM) strategy aimed at reducing and preventing biofilm re-formation
      2. Employ comprehensive, proactive BBWM protocol, including sharp debridement and application of broad-spectrum antimicrobial therapy followed by adjunctive therapy
      3. Review components of an ideal antimicrobial technology
      4. Explain the science of polyhexamethylene biguanide hydrochloride (PHMB) antimicrobial

Presenters: Shaun Carpenter, M.D., FAPWCA, CWSP  |  Gregory Schultz, Ph.D.

5. “Optimizing Chronic Wound Management Outcomes Through Biofilm-Based Wound Management: An Expert Panel Discussion”

Register here.

Learning Objectives  |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

      1. Examine a proactive biofilm‐based wound management (BBWM) strategy aimed at reducing and preventing biofilm re‐formation including the role of surgical debridement
      2. Outline properties of an ideal topical antimicrobial for combatting biofilm and explain the science of polyhexamethylene biguanide hydrochloride (PHMB)
      3. Assess clinical outcomes of Biofilm Based Wound Management followed by the ideal topical antimicrobial, potentially followed by cellular therapies
      4. Explore case studies on the use of surgical debridement, BBWM strategies and proven cellular therapies for the treatment of chronic wounds

Presenters: Jonathan N. Brantley, DPM Ryan H. Fitzgerald, DPM  |  Gregory Schultz, Ph.D.

Target audience: This activity is designed for physicians, podiatrists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants involved in the treatment of patients with chronic wounds.
