The Nurses for Nurses Network Wound Care Seminars are a popular and necessary program for Nurses wanting to keep up to date with best practice wound care guidelines.
In this two-day program, you will learn about:
- Chronic Wound Management – Combining the latest standards and common sense to ensure best practice
- Venous, Arterial and Mixed Leg Ulcers – What’s the difference and why is it important in Wound Management
- Hard to Heal (Complex Wounds) Causes, Tips & Solutions
- Wound Infection in Clinical Practice – Exploring the wound infection continuum and the latest international clinical practice guidelines
- The exploration of recommended wound care products, advanced wound care functions and the latest research influencing products and selection
Chronic wounds are estimated to affect 433,000 or more Australians a year at a conservative cost of $2.6b to the Australian health system. Nursing plays a huge role in how wound care is managed within multiple health service environments; hospitals, aged care settings, community services, and medical practices to name a few.
The role of the Nurse is not only to support the patient and provide wound management strategies that are able to meet the patient’s individual needs but also to manage the wound care resources available within the organisation to maximise wound management strategies in the most cost-effective way.
