Wound Care for Primary Care Practitioners

 Registration is closed for this event
This program is offered by the new Wounds Canada Institute.

About this program:

This interactive educational event builds on the contents of the Wounds Canada document “Best Practice Recommendations for the Prevention and Management of Wounds” and takes a more in-depth look at the components and application of the Wound Prevention and Management Cycle (WPMC) from the perspective of a primary care provider.

Topics include a review of the steps of the WPMC and components of comprehensive patient, wound, environment and health systems assessments—with a focus on differential diagnoses and common misdiagnoses—working as part of an integrated team and creating, evaluating and modifying patient-centred goals and plans of care including, but not limited to, treating the cause and co-factors, addressing wound pain and symptoms, wound debridement, infection and moisture management, prescribing options, use of advanced therapies and appropriate referrals. Upon completion, students will receive a certificate of attendance.


At the end of this educational event, students will be able to identify, define and implement the five steps of the WPMC, from the perspective of a primary care provider, for a person with or at risk for a wound, including:

• Completing the components of a comprehensive patient assessment

• Creating agreed-upon goals of care

• Assembling an integrated wound team

• Implementing a patient-specific plan of care

• Interpreting if patient goals have been met, and reassess as required
