Exploring the Concepts of Skin Changes at Life's End (SCALE)

The skin is the largest organ of the body and can become dysfunctional at life's end, with loss of integrity, just like any other vital body system, with reduced ability to utilize nutrients and other factors necessary to sustain normal skin function.

Join VHQC on Thursday, June 26 at 11:00 - 12:00 PM for an informative webinar, where providers will learn how to describe skin changes at life's end (SCALE), how to distinguish the difference between a pressure ulcer and a Kennedy terminal ulcer and how to determine appropriate intervention strategies for residents at the end of life.

The learning objectives for this educational session include:

  • Discussing the findings from the SCALE expert panel
  • Defining the Kennedy terminal ulcer (KTU)
  • Differentiating palliative wound care from curative wound care
