Abstract: 

The "Wound Care" module is part of the CHAMP faculty development program, which aims to improve inpatient, geriatric medical care through a "teach the teacher" approach. It is central to one of the four course themes, preventing hazards of hospitalization. Teaching materials available on the CHAMP webpage link include: slide presentation; a pocket teaching card; sample session evaluation form; CHAMP overview/user's guide; and access to the entire CHAMP course and all teaching resources.

CHAMP is a multi-tiered educational project with a faculty development program at its core. Hospitalists, general internists, and family practitioners who teach residents and medical students are the targeted audience. The course is organized around four themes in geriatric inpatient care: identifying and assessing vulnerable elders, preventing hazards of hospitalization, improving palliative and end of life care, and managing transitions of care. CHAMP addresses 15 geriatric topics and includes a mini-course entitled, "Teaching on Today's Wards," on advanced clinical teaching skills and teaching across the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting.

1 category CME credit hour was awarded to faculty who attended this teaching session.

Educational objectives: 

CHAMP "Wound Care" module trains learners to:

  1. Routinely perform a complete skin examination in hospitalized older adult patients.
  2. Perform a wound evaluation at bedside on teaching rounds.
  3. Formulate an effective plan of wound care, including a prognosis for healing.
  4. Recognize harmful or ineffective management techniques for wound care.
  5. Include wound care and prevention in the problem list and management plan.
