The Fabulous World of Wounds - Module Four

Chronic Wounds – Best Practice Management | #nurse #woundcare

Commences the 2nd of October 2018

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.

During this virtual series, we will explore Module Four. 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 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.

Module Learning Outcomes:

  • Explore the types of chronic wounds
  • Investigate the aetiology of arterial and venous ulcers and review management and care planning strategies
  • Consider the aetiology of mixed ulcers and review management and care planning strategies
  • Gain an understanding of product selection – acknowledging that there are over 3000 products available to choose from

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