Webinar on Wound Care for Medical Directors in LTC

Later this month I will be giving a free webinar sponsored by McKnights Long-Term Care News & Assisted Living entitled Wound Care: What the Medical Director Needs to Know. This Webinar will be part of McKnights 8th Online Expo, that will feature other webinar topics including MDS 3.0 update, technology in LTC, and survey preparation.  McKnight’s Long-Term Care News is a news magazine serving the institutional long-term care field. It reports on the events that affect the way care is delivered across the entire long-term care spectrum, ranging from the lower acuity assisted living setting, to the high acuity skilled nursing setting.
