The Advanced Wound Care Course is an innovative educational program for experienced health professionals involved in the management of complex wounds and tissue repair. The program sets out to improve wound care by exploring the pathophysiology of wound and tissue repair, determining the principles of wound healing, examining the latest techniques and technologies in wound healing and tissue repair, expanding knowledge of wound pharmaceuticals, dressings and bandages, and providing an opportunity to interact with health care providers involved in wound care.
The program is conducted in a collegiate environment where discussion and mutual support is emphasized and the attendee is encouraged to actively participate in the interactions to ensure maximum benefit at an individual level.
Attending the Advanced Wound Care Course will provide the participant with an improved knowledge base in current tissue repair, enhanced ability to critically assess published wound care literature and an enduring network of clinicians dealing with similar tissue repair problems.
