Management of Traumatic and Open Wounds by Jon Hall. The first webinar will begin by refreshing participants knowledge of the phases of wound healing and then use clinical examples to illustrate how this theory is practically important and useful in the treatment of traumatic wounds or open wounds resulting from surgical complications. Problems with wound healing and recognising them will be discussed, followed by examples of investigating and resolving some issues that can delay or halt normal progression of second intention healing. The importance of wound and peri-wound health will be emphasised for the normal progression of second intention healing, and appropriate dressing choice and application will be discussed.
Jon qualified from Cambridge in 2004 and then spent 5 years in small animal general practice. He spent a year at the RVC completing a small animal rotating internship, and then several months working for Vets Now. He returned to Cambridge for a surgery residency, and became an ECVS diploma holder in small animal surgery in 2015. He has since worked as an affiliated lecturer in soft tissue at Cambridge and will soon start as Senior Lecturer in soft tissue surgery at the University of Edinburgh.
