Rethinking Leg Ulcer assessment

Julie Stanton, Director of Nursing , Pioneer Telehealth , Wound healing and lymphoedema centres

The assumption is that patients leg ulcer aetiology is predominantly venous and this is how we are taught as nurses however, one of the most predominant wound types seen in most leg ulcer clinics is lymphovenous in my experience.

This session will question the current assessment methodology  and how to  change to include for assessment of lymphoedema and how this assessment can change your treatment pathways to enable effective healing for those chronic complex wounds and highlighting why this is important.
