You must also look at the patients past medical history, medications, and nutritional status as all these things affect wound healing. You will definately want to take advantage of CE courses. Use your sales reps also as they can provide a lot of free education. For example Healthpoint as free CE courses on their website as do a lot of other companies. The most important thing is to keep an open mind. Wound care is an ever changing world and you must be willing to try new things to determine if it might work better than what you have been using.
