Teaching Wound Care Management: A Model for the Budget Conscious Educator
Berry, David C.
Athletic Training Education Journal, v7 n3 p140-145 Jul-Sep 2012
For the author, the concept of wound care has always been a challenging topic to demonstrate. How to teach the concept without having a student in need of wound care or without having to spend money to buy another simulation manikin/model? The author has recently created a simulation to demonstrate and practice the cleaning, closing, and dressing of external wounds in a very cost effective manner using equipment already owned in the human performance laboratory. The purpose of this column is to provide athletic training educators (ATEs) with an innovative and cost efficient means to educate athletic training students as to how to clean, close, and dress external wounds.
