    Excellent course. Would recommend it to others.

    This course is excellent. The course is well organized with anatomy, and wound classification. Nancy has a strong knowdlege base on this subject matter. I would encourage any therapist considering sitting for the exam to purchase this. It is and exclent review and adjunct to a hand therapists education.

  4. Michele Berg

    It was a good course. I would have liked to see more woung bandaging.I liked the great description of the products available.

  5. Sheila Kamp

    Great information with lots of new ideas regarding the different types of dressings to get optimum results.
    I only wish it was possible to have those types of dressings in the clinics. The reason that I took this course was to update myself because major wounds are infrequent in our clinic but when they come in, you want to be sure you know what you are doing!
    It is great to know the new ideas and techniques, but frustrating when your administrative level won’t agree to budget for these items because of reimbursement issues.

    According to our billing department – there are no reimbursable codes for “wound care” even. Is this the same in all states or just California?

    We put wound care down on or charge sheets by adding it in in the “other” section, but we have been told that they can never bill it, they just bill the rest of what we do.

    It’s a shame. I wonder how other clinics do it – the ones that see major wounds in greater volume?

    Thanks for a great course though!
