Optimizing Wound Care Strategies for the CLT


It is common to see wounds in lymphedema practice. Assuch, CLTs are confident about the successful management of the lymphedema, butless so for concomitant wounds. As professionals, CLTs must approach thesecases with knowledge and skill since each patient deserves the best possibleoutcome regardless of the complexity. This 2-day course provides thefoundational skills of clinical wound care based upon accepted standards.

Both lymphedema and wounds are problems of theintegument. Current research describes lymphatic and circulatory anatomy asclosely linked, whereby the lymphatic vasculature may be the primary system forall reabsorption. Literature also supports that insufficiency of lymph drainagenot only contributes to sluggish wound healing and recurrence of ulcers, butmay also be the underlying pathology that contributes to the formation of avenous ulcer. Therefore, controlling periwound lymphedema results in enhancedwound healing. CLTs play a critical role in eliminating pathophysiologic barriersto wound healing and are uniquely aligned to optimally treat and support thelymphatic system. In the case of chronic wounds, lymphatic treatment can helppropel the wound to full closure in the most effective and efficient manner. Assuch, the CLT combines wound care expertise with lymphedema expertise and isbest positioned to heal chronic wounds.
