About the course

Wound management involves a comprehensive care plan with consideration of all factors contributing to and affecting the wound and the patient.

The role of the wound care nurse has developed to meet the need for expert wound care advice. Nurses should recognize the early signs of skin disruption which can help keep a small problem from turning into a big one. To recognize wounds early, nurses must understand where patients have the highest chance of developing a wound and should take measures to prevent or treat the wounds.

This course aims to update the nurses on important aspects of wound care. This includes a review of the physiology behind wound healing, an update on wound cleansing and dressing methods, as well as a guide on how to prevent and manage infection.
