Cognitive Impairment and Lower Leg Wounds? Consider Easy to Don Compression and Patient Adherence: A Case Series.

Congratulations to Rosemary Hill on her excellent poster presented at the 42nd Nurse Specialized in Wound Ostomy and Continence Canada conference in Ottawa. Rosemary is a wound, ostomy, and continence nurse from Lions Gate Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The poster presents five patients between 62-88 years with lower limb wounds. Four patients had cognitive challenges. EdemaWear [fuzzy-wale longitudinal compression stockinette] was used in each patient case. The poster presented some excellent case photography of before, during, and after treatment.

“NSWOCs and wound care practitioners could find the cases presented as a suitable option for managing appropriate patients with lower leg wounds and cognitive issues such as dementia.”

This poster highlights the Connecting Learners With Knowledge (CLWK) website in British Columbia.
