The Fabulous World of Wounds - Module Nine

Specialised Populations and Wound Management Considerations | #nurse #woundcare

Commences the 22nd Jan 2019

Wound management is often complex, and the complexity is magnified when caring for those populations that require specialised care and services.

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. 

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.

During this virtual series, we will explore Module Nine:Specialised Populations and Wound Management Considerations. There are a total of 12 CPD hours allocated in this e-Seminar program.

This module explores patient populations that have compounding variables that impact wound healing. The aetiology, risks, and best practice recommendations for wound and pain management will be explored with a focus on contemporary wound management products and group problem-solving.

Module Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of the specialised care requirements of various client populations
  • Explore the linkages between physiology and the process of wounding
  • Examine the most common types of wounds that are found in these populations
  • Review Nursing strategies that are directed at reducing the incidence of unnecessary wounds or wound complications in these populations
