Collaboration between PT & WOC Nurses on

Managing Risk to the Lower Extremity


Join us for the first of three free webinars in this year's Partners in Prevention educational series.


When: Thursday, May 7, 2015, 1-2 pm EDT


Presenters: Heather Hettrick, PT, PhD, CWS, CLT, CWLT

Tina Meyers, MBA, BSN, CWOCN

Description: Collaboration is essential as we seek optimal patient outcomes and appropriate product selection. Physical therapists and WOC nurses each bring a unique skill set when considering pressure redistribution methods to prevent pressure ulceration and lower extremity complications. Register for this webinar to hear two interdisciplinary leaders discuss the benefits of collaboration and the latest on the prevention of heel pressure ulcers!


At the end of this webinar, the participants will be able to:

  1. Understand how the pathophysiology of pressure ulcer development can lead to other complications and functional impairments of the lower extremity.
  2. Discuss research dynamics for the prevention of heel ulcers and plantar flexion contractures.


This webinar is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Sage Products.
