URGO’s “Tissue Viability & Wound Care Practice” program has been endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing.

URGO Medical is proud to announce that its “Tissue Viability & Wound Care Practice” program has been endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing !

 

This 2-day program is intended as a platform where basic to intermediate training is provided for those health care practitioners who are interested in acquiring further knowledge on the subject. This will enhance their practice when dealing with management of and prevention of tissue complications. The workshop includes didactic information via PowerPoint and videos as well as interactive sessions in the form of group activities, scenarios and hands-on.

 

Tissue Viability is explained as preventing insults to the skin and underlying tissues and facilitating healing in wounds where a complication has prevented the normal healing process. It is an umbrella term, which, when used correctly, refers to the prevention and management of tissue damage which may include both acute and chronic wound, and the provision of the appropriate environment for healing by both direct and indirect methods together with the prevention of skin breakdown.

 

The Urgo Education & Training Alliance has been established with the sole purpose of providing unbiased evidence based education to clinicians. The Chairman and main educational sessions facilitator, Emilio Galea, has a long experience in the field of wound management and tissue viability and holds an MSc in Skin Integrity Skills and Treatment from the University of Herefordshire (UK).
