1. Anatomy and Physiology of Skin

Rehabilitation nurses and staff need to understand the importance of skin integrity for the patient in maintaining health and full participation in rehabilitation programs. An overview of the anatomy and physiology of the skin, prevention of skin integrity issues, and patient education opportunities will be covered.

2. Skin Assessment

Rehabilitation nurses and staff need to be aware of how to complete a full skin assessment, not just a skin inspection. The difference between an inspection and a full assessment will be discussed and demonstrated.

3. Equipment Considerations

Rehabilitation patients use multiple pieces of equipment to assist with ADLs, communication, medical treatment, and mobility. The rehabilitation staff must be aware of the potential risk each piece of equipment poses for maintaining skin integrity. The importance of proper equipment use, skin assessments, and patient education are reviewed to increase the knowledge base of new rehabilitation professionals.
