National Wound Care Strategy Programme: the education work stream update

The Education Work stream was one of the latter to be formed as part of the National Wound Care Strategy Programme (NWCSP). We have representation from academics, senior nurses, podiatrists, tissue viability specialists, Queen’s nurses and educationalists. Our aim is to support the Clinical Work Streams by ensuring a suite of high-quality educational resources are available to support wound care-related knowledge and skill development for people working at all levels across the health and social care service.

One of our first objectives was to scope the existing free-to-access e-learning resources available. E-learning for Healthcare is a platform hosting hundreds of free-to-access e-learning modules, which currently has over a million users. Whilst historically it has been aimed at those within the clinical services, access to these resources is for anyone working within health and social care. We identified eleven modules relating to wound care and these are being reviewed by the clinical work streams against current best practice guidelines and for use by a multi-professional audience.
