What’s covered on the day?

Delegates will achieve a better understanding of the factors that affect wound healing in general practice. They will revisit the anatomy and physiology of the skin and will have a greater understanding of wound healing physiology including factors that may prevent the healing environment.
Delegates will achieve a greater understanding of wound management to include, exudate management, debridement & wound care products. (delegates are advised to adhere to the local wound formulary, if there is one in place) and our tutors will explain generically what each category of dressing does and when it should or should not be used.
Legal aspects of wound management will be discussed including, wound assessment, wound bed preparation and documentation. The training course should enable the delegate to manage the majority of acute surgical and traumatic wounds competently in order to promote healing rates.


Delegates will be assessed continuously throughout the session by the Tutor in order to be issued with a Certificate of Attendance
