More about: Changing Practice through Applied Knowledge 

 

The “Changing Practice through Applied Knowledge” workshop is a 2-day, case-based course that focuses on helping learners apply their knowledge to real-life situations that are common in their practice. Topics covered can be tailored to best suit each group, but this workshop generally begins with a discussion of best practice and general wound-healing principles, followed by case-based learning related to pressure injuries, surgical wounds, lower-leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers, and ending with a discussion of how to make change happen in your practice setting.
