Module Four of the Nine Module NCI Wound Management Program

In this module, we will discover the most common types of chronic wounds along with the aetiology, assessment, and best practice wound care recommendations. We will provide tips to apply to your decision making when choosing wound care products that are appropriate for each wound type.

The nine-module Nursing Wound Management Program 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 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. We have created this program so that the modules do not have to be completed in order.
