The Fabulous World of Wounds: Module Eight - Bundaberg

Nurse Practice Tasks | #nurses #woundmangement #nurselife

Wednesday, 28 November 2018

In this Seminar, we will explore Module 8 of our Nurse Wound Management Program. Modern wound care embraces the application of traditional, refined, and new treatment modalities. Nurses work in a variety of settings and require confidence and competence in many wound-related practices. This module focuses on common wound-related Nursing tasks.

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 Seminar program.

Module 8 will be delivered in two learning modes:

The program consists of 6 hours prework for the seminar, this will be delivered as 6 webinar presentations via an online library which will be available to you two weeks prior to the seminar commencement. The webinar component allows you to explore the theory behind the practical application of the content in the workshop setting.

On the 28th of November there will be a small (limited to 15 attendees) face to face group workshop that will give participants the opportunity to learn and practice these skills.

Participants are required to complete both the webinar component and the face to face component to be awarded the CPD attainment of Module 8.
