Che Plang, director of Rehab at Wildflower Court in Juneau, AK

Che Plang

Director of Rehab, Wildflower Court, Juneau, Alaska

Nearly 25 percent of the residents of Juneau, Alaska, live in rural areas, a situation which presents both challenges and opportunities for health care professionals like Physical Therapist Che Plang. After earning his certification in wound care, Che traveled to Wisconsin to attend Woundstock. As a result, Che enhanced his skills in debridement, off-loading, and other chronic wound care techniques. Upon his return to Juneau he was able to immediately put what he learned to use for the benefit of his patients. And, as the Director of Rehab in his facility, he shares his new expertise with co-workers to lead health care improvements in his region and provide specialized care closer to home.

Living Life to the Fullest

When a new patient came into the clinic suffering from a chronic wound, Che used techniques he had learned at Woundstock to dramatically reduce the size of the wound over the next five months. The result? His patient was able to enjoy her planned Hawaiian vacation with her husband on schedule.

Faster Healing

One of the vendors at Woundstock introduced Che to Wound Vac Therapy. This new technique enabled Che to help a patient whose broken thigh bone had developed into chronic infected wounds. Thanks to what he had learned, Che was able to close up two of the wounds within weeks and the rest shortly after that. The result? His patient was able to resume normal life much sooner than expected.

Che's testimonial

"Because of Woundstock my work has improved compared to other practitioners. Being skilled in wound care is an art."
