Building a Community of Practice.

Networking with Wound Care Leaders.

Collaborating with the Broader Wounds Canada Community.


Join the Community

The Wound Care Leadership Initiative is designed to connect and integrate wound care leaders from across Canada into a shared community. The initiative is based on a framework that aims to create a Community of Practice (CoP). Click here to learn more about the framework and Wounds Canada’s approach. 

The initiative builds and supports leadership in wound care via virtual webinars, an online forum, mentorship and various projects hosted by Wounds Canada. Leadership growth and development is structured around three pillars:

  • Building a Community of Practice
  • Networking for Wound Care Leaders
  • Collaborating with the Broader Wounds Canada Community
Why Apply

Our leaders will find support, new opportunities and lasting connections through this initiative. Our integrated approach ensures that each leader has the tools and support needed to grow their leadership abilities. 


Our new podcast series is set to air in the fall of 2021! Join us as we discuss the programs and initiatives our leaders have been working on in their communities.

Several leaders have published in our journal, Wound Care Canada. Click here, here and here to read the articles.
