Module Nine - Specialised Populations and Wound Management Considerations | #nurses #nursing #woundcare | 23 August - 24 August 2018

In this Seminar, we will explore Module Nine. The content of each module stands alone as a continuing professional development (CPD) activity and the completion of each module will be awarded a CPD Certificate as evidence of the education activity. There is a total of 12 CPD hours allocated in this Seminar program.

Module Nine Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of the specialised care requirements of various client populations
  • Explore the linkages between physiology and the process of wounding
  • Examine the most common types of wounds that are found in these populations
  • Review Nursing strategies that are directed at reducing the incidence of unnecessary wounds or wound complications in these populations

The Nurses for Nurses Network has created a nine-module 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.
