Drug-Induced Skin Disorders and Wounds: Basics on Prevention and Care

Monday, Mar 18, 2024 1 pm to 2 pm

Virtual

Training Sessions

Abstract

Daily, heavy use of illicit substances will commonly lead to many medical problems. The integumentary system, including the skin, is the largest organ of the human body and is thus prone to many of these adverse medical outcomes. Attendees of this presentation will learn about predisposing causes of drug-induced skin disorders and corresponding prevention strategies, substance adulterants that can cause skin damage, and when and how to seek medical treatment. Additionally, we will learn about prevention strategies as well. The substance, Xylazine, is a challenging and increasingly more common cause of severe substance-associated wounds. Therefore, attendees will learn specific strategies to address Xylazine-associated wounds.

Objectives

  • Be aware that use of substances may lead to development of wounds and other skin damage
  • Describe with xylazine is and how it can affect human health
  • Educate clients of substance use patterns to prevent skin damage
  • Educate clients on basic concepts of wound care to optimize healing of damaged skin
