Palliative Wound Care (AAHPM)

The traditional goal of wound care is to heal or prepare for surgical closure, but techniques and procedures used to “heal” a wound can be painful or uncomfortable and very costly. It is inappropriate to ignore wounds or declare them untreatable in patients at the end of life. Palliative wound care requires a different mindset than traditional wound care, yet is based on the same fundamental scientific principles. The concept of palliation for chronic wounds is a relatively new concept within the past ten years. Palliation recognizes and accepts non-healing endpoints as appropriate care and uses non-healing strategies to comfort patients and improve quality of life. This presentation provides a framework for understanding and providing palliative care for wounds at the end of life. AAHPM endorses the standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). All who are in a position to control or influence the content of an educational activity must disclose any relevant financial relationships with commercial interests.* Disclosure documents were reviewed for potential conflicts of interest and, if identified, they were resolved prior to confirmation of participation. Only those who had no conflict of interest or who agreed to an identified resolution process prior to their participation were involved in this activity. (All editors and authors have disclosed no relevant financial relationships with one exception: Langemo receives payment for serving as a speaker with Hill Rom, as a consultant with EHOB and Healthpoint, as a researcher with Medline, and as a consensus panel member for 3M.) *A commercial interest is defined as any entity producing, marketing, reselling, or distributing healthcare goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. (Exclusions at the time of this writing included 501-C nonprofit organizations, government organizations, liability and health insurance providers, non-healthcare related companies, group medical practices, and for-profit healthcare providers.)
