Experimental: Patients with open surgical wounds
Patients with open surgical wounds will undergo enhanced packing education with curriculum designed for learners with low literacy, dyslexia or associated learning disorders.
Behavioral: Enhanced Education
Enhanced educational curriculum will involve learning modalities including 3D modeling, video, and visual-aid enhanced text for references to improve caregiver and patient understanding of wound packing techniques.
- Utilization of education curriculum designed for learners with low literacy, dyslexia and associate learning disorders [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Nursing surveys answering the question, "Have you been trained to teach wound care to patients with dyslexia or learning disabilities?" Were answered "No," by 43/46 (93%) respondents. We seek to have a 90% rate of affirmative ("Yes") answers to this survey after implementation of our curriculum.
- Patient satisfaction with wound education [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Survey of patients' wound education experiences should indicate that they are being offered curriculum suitable for learners with low literacy, dyslexia and associated learning disorders. We will utilize a scale of "Definitely satisfied, somewhat satisfied, somewhat dissatisfied, definitely dissatisfied" as our measure.
- shorter time to wound healing [ Time Frame: 1 year ]After implementation of new curriculum, it is anticipated that wound complication rates and time to wound healing would decrease. We will calculate the "time" based on the date of wound creation to their final clinic appointment indicated the wound is satisfactorily healed with "days" as our unit of measure.
