CAWC Education

The CAWC offers opportunities to health-care professionals using various methods to provide flexible, interprofessional education that supports the learning needs and professional career growth in the areas of skin health, wound prevention and management. The strength of the programs lies not only in their content and delivery methods, but also because they are part of a continuum of learning aimed at improving the practice of health-care professionals all levels, in all settings and across the entire country. Because our educational programs are linked to our publications, social media channels and conference, the messages are reinforced and accessible regardless of the learning style of the HCP. This “layering” is one of the strength’s of CAWC Education.

The basis for the education is a series of online modules that provide foundational knowledge of wound prevention and management.

Online Modules: Laying the Foundation

The basis for the education is a series of online modules that provide foundational knowledge of wound prevention and management. The Ontario Hospital Association and the Canadian Association of Wound Care (CAWC) have partnered to create the Foundations of Wound Care program, composed of five online modules. Modules

Principles of Wound Healing is a free online module that should be completed before starting the four modules below:

  • Introduction to Wounds

  • Prevention and Management of Venous Leg Ulcers

  • Prevention and Management of Pressure Ulcers
  • Prevention and Management of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

For more information or to register, please visit http://www.oha.com/Education/OnlineTrainingandTools/Pages/WoundCare.aspx

The Foundations of Wound Care program is the prerequisite for Case-Based Workshop: Changing Practice through Applied Knowledge. Please note that if you intend to register for this two day workshop, the 5 modules are included in the workshop registration fee (unless otherwise mentioned).
