RN Learning: Palliative Wound Care: What's What and Why?
Presented by Myra Varnado, BS, RN-BC, CWON, CFCN.

This continuing nursing education activity is designed to provide learners with an evidence-based approach to wound management in palliative and hospice patients. Emphasis is placed on distinguishing key strategies for prevention and management of conditions seen in hospice and palliative care including pressure injury, skin changes at life's end (SCALE), skin tears, moisture-associated skin damage (MASD), and lower extremity edema.

Ms. Varnado is celebrating her twentieth anniversary as a Certified Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurse (CWON), having received her specialty nursing education from Emory University's Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing Wound, Ostomy and Continence Education Center. She provides education programs for health care providers in a variety of settings both nationally and internationally. As a member of the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) Wound Guidelines Task Force for the past 18 years, Ms. Varnado has written the evidence-based guidelines for the Management of Wounds in Patients with Pressure Injury, Lower Extremity Venous and Arterial Disease, and Neuropathic/Diabetic Foot Disease, and is the primary author of the WOCN Clinical Practice Guideline, "Management of Wounds in Patients with Lower Extremity Neuropathic Disease." She has published numerous wound related papers and serves as the Director of Clinical Services for Corstrata, a national wound and ostomy telemedicine clinical services company.
