Chronic Wounds – Best Practice Management

Over 433,000 Australians suffer from chronic wounds and at least 2.6 billion dollars a year is spent on treatment strategies. Chronic wounds are debilitating for patients and are resource intensive for healthcare services.

The Nurses for Nurses Network has created a nine-module Nursing Wound Management Program that provides the Nurse with the skill and knowledge to assess, plan, and manage wounds in the clinical setting to achieve the best possible outcome for the client. The content of each module stands alone as a continuing professional development (CPD) activity and the completion of each module will be awarded a CPD Certificate as evidence of the education activity. We have created this program so that the modules do not have to be completed in order.

In this module, we will discover the most common types of chronic wounds along with the aetiology, assessment, and best practice wound care recommendations. We will provide tips to apply to your decision making when choosing wound care products that are appropriate for each wound type.

Please Note: A pre-recorded webinar, The Physiology of Wound Healing and the Identification and Categorisation of Wounds will be provided in the Online Library for your review prior to the commencement of this seminar.
