The Fabulous World of Wounds - Module Six

Wound Products and Best Practice Application | #nurse #woundcare

Commences the 6th May 2019

0741513884 [email protected]

With over 3000 wound care products on the market, appropriate product selection can be difficult. In this module, we will explore the key categories of products available and review national and international best practice wound management guidelines. A number of “clinical tips” will be shared by the Presenter during this session. 

In recognition of the fact that not all workplaces are well resourced with wound care products, the session will also cover a baseline selection of products that would allow you to address the majority of wounds that you may see in your clinical practice.

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.
