Wound care

All patients are prone to developing wounds and so it is essential that healthcare professionals have a clear knowledge of the theory behind the healing process, as well as an understanding of the different management options when this process is interrupted. The modules on different wound types give clear instruction as to their assessment and management, and help to develop the skills and knowledge needed in day-to-day clinical practice. Specific treatment options are also explored to give greater insight into how intelligent wound dressings can improve patient care.

Chronic oedema/lymphoedema

Chronic oedema and lymphoedema are debilitating conditions, which, if not recognized and treated properly, will steadily worsen, leading to significant discomfort and reduced quality of life. It is vital that healthcare professionals have a clear understanding of how the underlying lymphatic and venous systems function, and the conditions/ circumstances that may cause damage. These modules also detail the assessment process to follow in order to identify clinical signs and symptoms of deterioration, and how effective management can lessen the negative impact that chronic oedema and lymphoedema have on patient quality of life, both physically and psychosocially.
