    Nearly half a million Australians are affected by wounds in some way. It is predicted that the prevalence and cost of wound care will rise over the next few years because of the ageing population. Comprehensive assessment guides treatment. Knowledge of foundation principles of wound care is essential. Additionally, new wound dressing products are becoming increasingly sophisticated. If best patient outcomes are to be achieved, applying evidenced wound management is essential.

    Your Learning Outcomes

    • Build an understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of wounds with factors that impact on healing
    • Use a systematic approach for assessing a patient and their wound to guide appropriate care
    • Describe an appropriate management plan, including dressings, taking into account patient considerations and the pathophysiology of the wound
