Program Description

Basic Training: An Introduction to Wound Care was created to meet the needs of an expanding clinical specialty, based on the requests of physicians, nurses and technicians to provide a web based online introductory wound care educational offering. This course will provide introductory background, knowledge and skills to meet the potential knowledge gap of providers working in the field of wound care.

This course is appropriate for both entry level novice practitioners as well as for experienced clinicians who want to review basic wound care concepts and best practice standards. Additionally, this course is intended to meet the educational needs of professionals who see wound care patients in a variety of care settings including: hospital based clinic, outpatient clinic, office based practice, inpatient service, home care, urgent care clinic, or emergency department.

Educational Objectives

  • Understand the basic tenets of wound healing physiology and recognize factors that can cause compromised healing.
  • Discuss the assessment and classification of chronic wounds that allows for implementation of clinical algorithms for initial management.
  • Recognize the scientific basis supporting the management of chronic wounds.
  • Employ therapeutic approaches in Wound Care.
  • Integrate into their practices the knowledge obtained through didactic lectures and clinical case studies.
