Module 4: Chronic Wounds – Best Practice Management | #nurse #woundcare | GO TO FULL LISTING>>

Over 433,000 Australians suffer from chronic wounds and at least 2.6 billion dollars a year is spent on treatment strategies. Chronic wounds are debilitating for patients and are resource intensive for healthcare services.

The Nurses for Nurses Network has created a nine-module Nursing Wound Management Program that provides the Nurse with the skill and knowledge to assess, plan, and manage wounds in the clinical setting to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.

The Fabulous World of Wounds – Module Five: Complex and Hard to Heal Wounds | #nurse #woundcare | GO TO FULL LISTING>>

Complex and Hard to Heal wounds impact the individual, their family, society, and the health economy. Inappropriate or delayed treatment adversely affects the time for the wound to heal. Failure to recognise wounds not progressing towards healing increases the subsequent risk of non-healing and places the patient at unnecessary increased risk of wound complications.

The Fabulous World of Wounds – Module Six: Wound Products and Best Practice Application | #nurse #woundcare | GO TO FULL LISTING>>

With over 3000 wound care products on the market, appropriate product selection can be difficult. In this module, we will explore the key categories of products available and review national and international best practice wound management guidelines. A number of “clinical tips” will be shared by the Presenter during this session.

In recognition of the fact that not all workplaces are well resourced with wound care products, the session will also cover a baseline selection of products that would allow you to address the majority of wounds that you may see in your clinical practice.
