Keeping skin whole and healthy helps a person feel comfortable and prevents infection.  When skin problems occur, severe infections can develop which are painful, life-threatening, or lead to amputation.

Learn what you can do to prevent individuals you support from having skin problems such as open sores and rashes.  Develop your knowledge of what to watch for and what to do when you see a possible problem.


Waisman WIN Distance Learning

The Waisman WIN (Wellness Inclusion Nursing) program is excited to announce a new series of online training opportunities for individuals around the state of Wisconsin. This series provides expertise, training, and resources through videoconference workshops for individuals who support the overall health and well being of adults and children with IDDs in their communities.

Access to resources and clinical services focused on the specialized healthcare needs of individuals with disabilities may not be available in many rural and underserved communities in Wisconsin and beyond. To meet this need, the Waisman Center aims to expand access to its specialized resources and expertise through WIN videoconference workshops.

Who should participate?

Family members, caregivers, residential and vocational staff, and others who support adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs) in the community.

About Waisman WIN:

The Wellness Inclusion Nursing (WIN) Program nurses serve as consultants to residential and vocational team members, families and health care providers focusing on restoring, maintaining and promoting maximal health and independence for adults and children with developmental disabilities (DD) so they can achieve the best life possible.
