“We are committed to making care a more personal experience for our patients,” said Foster. “With hundreds of clinicians across the country, we recognize that the different levels of knowledge and approaches to wound care can impact both utilization of products and clinical best practices. Our goal is to leverage tactics to ensure every clinician is equipped with the latest knowledge and tools to provide the very best care.”
Helping to ‘align our clinical teams’
More than 20 nurses from Gentiva engaged in the training, with topics ranging from creating a culture of safety, anatomy and physiology of the skin, dressing changes, and helping provide skin health education to a patient’s family.
“The format of the boot camp was beneficial for increasing knowledge on specific types of wound care products and the methods in which those products support optimal outcomes for patients. We had many tenured nurses attend, and the information provided was a great refresher. It will help us align our clinician teams on using consistent language and best practices,” Foster added.
