Program description

Wound care is one of the fastest growing areas in health care today. Attaining comprehensive wound management skills requires continuing education that incorporates diverse, evidence-based information, best practice proficiency and collaborative opportunities across health disciplines. 

This online program for health care professionals combines the most current information and trends in wound care. It consists of two levels of training, offered through separate courses:

  • Level I is a six-week online course. Newly revised in 2020 to align with new wound care standards, this course provides you with the essential tools and strategies to confidently practice evidence-based wound care as part of an interprofessional team. The main concepts include: prevention, wound assessment and care planning, wound care product selection, wound healing, infection, and patient-professional collaboration. Students must achieve a course score of 75% or higher to receive a Professional Development Certificate for Level I and be eligible to register for Level II.
  • Level II is an eight-week online course, followed by a mandatory one-day on-campus workshop and evaluation session. It focuses on advanced wound care and the impact of additional patient factors on a care plan. Students must attend the workshop and achieve an overall grade of 75% or greater in order to receive a Certificate of Completion for Level II.

This online program provides a facilitated, flexible learning environment. Interactive learning combines with in-depth discussions and concepts of wound management and its challenges. You'll apply theory to case studies to develop clinical expertise in a broad range of essential wound care components.
