Approaches to wound care vary depending on the goals of the client along with their medical, physical, and nutritional barriers and mental health. Considering numerous factors play into wound healing, delay of wound healing, or wound decline, it is important to distinguish between the three main wound goals and recognize the inter-professional care path needed to achieve the most appropriate goal for each patient. Using our inter-professional panel of a registered dietitian, physical therapist, and registered nurse, we will explore the three main wound goals and discuss the collaborative “patient-centered” approach to reach each goal. This educational opportunity will explore three different client/patient scenarios and how these differences may alter their wound healing goals and the inter-professional care plan for either: 1. Complete wound healing; 2. Maintenance goals; and 3. Palliative/Comfort goals.
