Lesson Plan Overview / Details
The Sports Medicine student will learn proper wound care (abrasion) procedures for an injured person, and practice their communication skills, with others, in the process.

Activities in this Lesson
- Prior Knowledge of Wound Care - Hooks / Set
- Show visuals (pictures) of wound injuries (see attached power point for pics)
- While viewing pictures, review the different types of wounds (i.e. abrasions, lacerations, punctures, etc.), and vocabulary (infection, disinfect, antibiotic ointment, sterile, etc.) discussed in previous lessons
- Discuss with a partner, 5min, personal experiences with wounds and how they were cared for (either on themselves or what they’ve seen on other people) (take role at this time)
- Choose one experience (per pair of students) to share with the class

- Inform - Other
Inform the students the teacher will demonstrate proper procedures, and utilize appropriate supplies, for wound care.
Key Review Vocab: Infection control; MRSA; allergies; antibiotic ointments; disinfectants (betadine, saline solution, hydrogen peroxide, soap & water), sterile; infection
Inform the students their wound care procedures and skill will be assessed using a rubric
- Setting Up Wound Care Procedures - Demo / Modeling
Give students their handouts: 1) supply list 2) wound care procedures/grading rubric
The teacher will demonstrate proper wound care procedures, and utilize appropriate supplies, as the students follow along on their handouts. Remind the students that their wound care procedures and skills will be assessed using this same rubric.
Critical aspects include
- Allergy assessment
- Wash and dry hands thoroughly
- Proper glove application
- Bleeding control (direct vs indirect pressure; elevate; ice)
- Various disinfectants (betadine, saline solution, hydrogen peroxide, soap & water)
- Various antibiotic ointments and their application
- Wound covering (non-stick gauze)
- Circulation check
- Proper glove removal and waste disposal
- Patient wound care instructions
- Definition and signs and symptoms of infection
- Wash and dry hands thoroughly
Students will follow along, and take notes, as needed, using their rubric.
Key vocabulary during demonstration that was discussed in previous lessons: Infection control; MRSA; allergies, antibiotic (neosporin, triple antibiotic, etc.) disinfectants (betadine, hydrogen peroxide, cinder suds, saline solution, etc.); sterile; infection
- Partner Wound Care Practice - Group Work
The students will gather their supplies, using the given supply list and pair up with their partner. Each student completes a “pretend” wound care procedure following the steps on the rubric.
Students will then pair with their partner to practice wound care on each other utilizing the wound care supply handout and rubric. The teacher and previous sports medicine students will advise as needed.
Students grade each other using a rubric as their guide. Then discuss with each other why the procedures were correct and why other procedures could be improved.
- Grade Student Using the Rubric - Assessment
The student performs wound care procedures for the teacher as the teacher grades according to the rubric.
- Reflection - Closure
The students will then write a one paragraph reflection of what they learned, and give two examples of situations when they may need to use their wound care skills in real life (at home, on vacation, camping, etc.)
The teacher will create discussion as to where students may need to use these skills & supplies in the future, and outside of the classroom. It is also important to remind the students that this hands-on practicing allows for them to be more comfortable in handling a “real” wound care situation.
