Course description

This comprehensive online course develops your clinical skills and knowledge for advanced-practice wound care, to work as a Wound Champion.

The eight-week course focuses on:

  • Pain management
  • Nutrition
  • Lower limb assessment
  • Arterial and venous disease and ulcers
  • Compression therapy
  • Diabetic ulcers and high-risk foot
  • Lymphedema and lipedema
  • Surgical wounds
  • Burns
  • Palliative wounds
  • Negative-pressure wound therapy

You will extend your skills to consider advanced wound assessment and management in the context of factors such as the presence of co-morbid conditions, psychosocial issues, and resource considerations.

At the end of the course you will attend a required workshop. As the health and safety of our learners, instructors and staff is our primary concern, the workshop is now being held as a half-day online synchronous event. In the workshop, you’ll gather with your peers and instructor and present the results of your report developed during the course evaluating a wound care product.
