About this program:
This self-paced program, delivered through two online courses, a one-day on-site skills lab and a webinar, is aimed at nurses and allied health professionals who self-identify as novice or advanced beginner in their knowledge, skill and judgment of venous leg ulcer prevention, assessment and management. The program provides the opportunity to refine fundamental skills relevant to the assessment and management of venous leg ulcers, such as ankle-brachial pressure index testing, monofilament testing, gait assessment, assessment of ankle and leg range of motion (ROM), selection and application of compression wraps and garments and ROM exercises. The program is based on the concepts and content in Wounds Canada’s Best Practice Recommendation articles and provides students with the most recent information in a form they can immediately use at the bedside. Once the student successfully completes all the interactive modules (courses) in this program, the on-site skills workshop and webinar, they will receive a certificate of successful completion.
