Wound Care and Entrepreneurship with Donna Nair
Although most people consider wounds to be a negative thing, they are actually a necessary part of the healing process. By providing good wound care, you can speed up the healing process and minimize the chances of infection or other complications.
In this episode of High Performance Nursing, I had a lesson-filled conversation with Donna Nair. Donna is an advanced practice nurse with 20 years of wound care experience and has completed accredited lymphedema training as well.
In our conversation, we take a look at the different types of wounds, how to properly care for them, and some of the common complications that can occur. We also discuss when it might be time to seek professional help and some of the innovative treatments that are available today.
So whether you’re a nurse who wants to brush up on your wound care knowledge or someone who is caring for a loved one with a wound, this episode is for you. Listen now to learn more about wound care!
