Telehealth as an effective method for wound treatment

In an article featured in Hospital and Healthcare Magazine, Clinical Nurse Specialist Wound Management, Megan Jordan discusses how Telehealth is a viable education and consultation method for effective wound treatment. The article centers around a case study involving a woman with rheumatoid arthritis who had been dealing with a leg ulcer for three years.

Faced with geographical and COVID-19 travel restrictions, weekly telehealth reviews replaced traditional face-to-face assessments. The wound management CNS played a pivotal role by conducting videoconference education sessions for nursing staff, focusing on dressing products and wound hygiene.

The success of the healing process is attributed to meticulous clinical evaluation, strategic planning, and active involvement of the patient in their treatment, thereby reducing the risk of recurrence. Even after discharge, a follow-up telehealth meeting ensured an agreement on an ongoing wound care plan. This article highlights the positive impact of a person-centered team approach and a comprehensive care plan in addressing longstanding wound healing challenges, showcasing the adaptability and effectiveness of Telehealth in modern healthcare practices.
