Why Nurses Attend
Nursing professionals are an essential part of the wound management team. In addition to assessing, treating, and monitoring the patient’s wounds, they also encourage practices that can prevent chronic wounds, thus minimizing suffering and other complications.
Becoming CWCA® or CWS® certified provides nursing professionals with the broad range of knowledge and expertise critical to improving outcomes in their patients with chronic wounds, such as pressure ulcers, vascular wounds, atypical wounds, and more.
