In the summer of 2010 I helped the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) introduce the new MDS section for skin condition. I gave a two hour talk in Las Vegas which was videotaped and posted on YouTube by CMS. This video goes over pressure ulcer prevention, coding, wound identification, staging, and treatment. It also covers coding guidelines for pressure ulcers present on admission. As of May 2011 this video has been viewed over 3,000 times.
In addition, I posted downloadable teaching materials on my blog. As of May 2011 there have been over 2,000 downloads of these materials.
