Skin tears: Preventing, assessing and managing them
Learn how to assess, manage, and most importantly, take appropriate measures to reduce the risk of patients developing skin tears through this training module. This course is presented by Mölnlycke and endorsed by the International Skin Tear Advisory Panel (ISTAP).
Although skin tears are perceived to be common among the frail and elderly, they are often left unreported or are considered minor injuries. However, recent studies show that misdiagnosed and mismanaged skin tears can lead to serious complications (such as pain and infection) and can even become chronic wounds. This results in unnecessary suffering for the patient, as well as increased costs for the healthcare system.
