About This Webinar

In recent times, there has been an increasing awareness of unnecessary disparities in the skin and wound healing related care for people with different skin tones. This session will cover how to improve the quality and safety of wound healing related care for patients of all skin tones. Practical tips and hints will be provided about the main things to consider when assessing, planning, delivering and evaluating the care given to people with different skin tones to prevent and/or treat wounds. The impact that culture, race, and ethnicity can have on the quality and safety of care that is provided to people with different skin tones will be examined. In sum, this session covers the fundamental aspects of safe high-quality skin and wound care for people of all skin tones.
