Unlock the Mysteries of the Baltics and Wound Management

Everything you have ever wanted to know about wound care management #nurses #woundcare

16 June - 25 June 2019

Join us for the Fabulous World of Wounds Conference aboard the Norwegian Getaway as we explore the Baltics leaving from Copenhagen, Denmark.

Discover the splendours of Copenhagen, Berlin, Estonia, St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm.

The Nurses for Nurses Network has created a nine-module Wound Management Program, called the Fabulous World of Wounds and we will be delivering Modules 2 and 4 at this Conference.

The content 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.

All Nurses, irrespective of the workplace, need to understand wound management and be able to provide clinical support and /or advice to a patient. In addition, Registered Nurses need to have comprehensive wound management knowledge to provide advice and/or direct other members of the clinical team in wound management.

This is an exceptional opportunity to cover this level of expert content in such a fabulous conference setting.
