Why Physical Therapists Attend

Physical Therapists play a critical role in eliminating barriers to wound healing and using specific interventions to enhance healing and outcomes, such as debridement and biophysical modalities. They are often on the front lines, treating patients both in the hospital and in outpatient settings. As physical therapists play a critical role in the wound-healing continuum, the content for our Wound Certification Prep Course has been co-developed by two esteemed Doctors of Physical Therapy who also serve as co-presenters for the course: 


Pamela Scarborough, PT, DPT, MS, CDE, CWS, CEEAA
