Education & Resources
The VGM Wound Care program is organized to make it easy for you to access the information you need. We understand that the patients you serve need education about his or her entire disease state vs. just providing relevant products. We also know that the likelihood of a patient having multiple disease states or other lingering health-related problems due to his or her disease state is extremely high. Educating your patients about relevant disease states and offering the products and services he or she needs for overall wellness ensures you have loyal, repeat customers and, in turn, a healthier business.
Our program is broken down in the following categories:
- Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
- Support Surfaces
- Nutritional Products
- Compression Therapy
- Wound Care Dressings
Each category includes access to proprietary education and resources.
