The Fabulous World of Wounds - Module Seven

Wound Therapies | #nurses #woundcare

Commences 29 July 2019

Science and innovation are advancing the world of modern wound therapy at a rapid rate. Products that have been embraced in the past, are now combined with state of the art technologies to form new healing modalities to apply to wounds, that by tradition, would not have been able to be resolved. 

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 of e-Seminars, we will explore Module Seven: Wound Therapies. There are a total of 6 CPD hours allocated in this e-Seminar program.

In this module, we will unpack the therapies that are available in Australia and review their application. Wound care research is progressing rapidly and we will peruse the latest products available now and on the horizon. You will be fascinated!

  • Gain an understanding of the theory and application of negative pressure wound therapy
