Online Education | Wound Care Update 2014

Managing Wounds Across Care Settings

Wound management is a dynamic and evolving area of practice in health care today. Wounds present complex challenges and pivotal opportunities for multidisciplinary teams to collaborate and improve the health status of patients. This online course addresses current scientific, clinical and professional practice issues across care settings related to acute and chronic wounds including evidence-based and multidisciplinary strategies for assessing and intervening to achieve successful outcomes. Teaching methods include lecture, discussion and case studies. 

What conference attendees said about the UWCNE Wound Care Update 2014 Conference:

"These were wonderful, very knowledgeable speakers this year. I learned a lot about the different facets of wound care that I may not have learned otherwise. I will definitely come back next year! I think the set up and the flow of topics were very well planned."

"This conference was very well planned. It met not only advanced practice wound care nurses' continuing education practice needs, but the information is also useful for novice nurses."

"For me, the more practical the information the better. I love hearing how others practice, and what they find has worked as far as dresings and unusual applications and modalities."

These online recorded lectures were recorded in November 2014 at a conference in Lynnwood, Washington provided by Continuing Nursing Education at the University of Washington School of Nursing. Teaching methods include video, audio and downloadable handouts.

Publish Date: June 4, 2015. This course will be available for three years from this date.
