Wound Care Training – Primary Care (Community)

½ DAY ‘ESSENTIALS’ OR FULL-DAY ‘FUNDAMENTALS’

OVERVIEW​

wound care

Wound Care Training – Primary Care (Community) – Facilitated by registered nurses with first hand clinical experience, our ‘Wound Care’ course can be facilitated within a half-day session (Essentials) all healthcare professionals. Alternatively, a comprehensive full-day course (Fundamentals) for senior carers and registered healthcare professionals is available.

This blended learning course allows attendees to gain theoretical and practical understanding of wound care best practice.

This training course is intended to cover all aspects of wound care including practical application within a classroom environment.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

2 million patients are treated for wounds every year at a cost of more than £5 billion to the NHS. Most of this figure pays for nursing care costs rather than dressings and associated products (Hansard, 2017).

Data now suggest that approximately 2.2 million patients have a chronic wound (Guest et al 2016).
