Palliative wound care: A new frontier

from GeriPal

Dr. Jeffrey M. Levine writes: "I recently completed the revised chapter on pressure injuries for the Geriatrics Review Syllabus (GRS-10), which will be coming out shortly. Part of the content addressed the topic of palliative care for chronic wounds. In my text, I claimed that a palliative approach can reduce suffering, improve quality of life, and decrease health care costs by eliminating expensive and/or painful procedures and treatments, but found little corroborating evidence. In the process of revision, I did an informal poll of colleagues from coast to coast, and found nobody addressing palliative care for wounds. Research in this area thus presents a wide open career opportunity for a young palliative care specialist." more
