The Fabulous World of Wounds - Module Two

Acute Wounds – Types & Management Page | #nurse #woundcare

Commences the 13th June 2018

Acute wounds can present in any healthcare setting. Nurses need to remain aware of the types of acute wounds that may present and the contemporary management strategies that should be employed.

The Nurses for Nurses Network has created a nine-module 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.

During this virtual series, we will explore Module Two. 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. There is a total of 12 CPD hours allocated in this e-Seminar program.

In this module, we will explore the common types of acute wounds and the unique characteristics of wounds that are found in each category. In particular, we will unpack the aetiology, risk factors and best practice management recommendations for skin tears, burns, surgical wounds and wounds caused by trauma.

Module Learning Outcomes:

  • Investigate the types of acute wounds from aetiology to management strategies
  • Explore the management of skin tears and burns
  • Investigate the management of surgical wounds and wounds created by acute trauma
  • Undertake case study and scenario-based group work to reinforce the knowledge gained

Module Two is a series of six e-Seminar sessions: 

All 6 sessions are included in the registration fee.
