The aging skin: Understanding skin changes that make our residents more susceptible to breakdown, common areas of wound development, and stages of pressure injuries

During this first course in the Wounds module of the webinar series, we will take an in depth look at the 3 layers of skin, their function and age-related changes that occur at each layer that make our elderly resident more susceptible to skin breakdown. We will explore common areas of skin breakdown and understand each stage of a pressure injury and its distinguishing characteristics.
