Basic and innovative practices in wound management
Pratical education programme

The European Academy of Wound
Technology (EAWT) opens its doors in 2006.

Training in wounds and healing has gradually become better structured since 1992. Local and then national scientific meetings, training sessions lasting from a few hours to several days, and congresses which sometimes involve more than 6000 participants, have been organised.

University diplomas were introduced in 1997, and this marked a turning point in the recognition of these skills by all healthcare professionals concerned, whatever their initial level of learning ; nurse, doctor or pharmacist. This training for a qualification has opened the way to true recognition of these practices and the principle of a real discipline, wound care.

For many people, these University diplomas have provided an opportunity to increase awareness of wounds, their medical causes and the problems encountered in their management and care.

The organisers of these diploma courses rapidly realised that an additional level was necessary in view of the rapid and sometimes sophisticated technological advances achieved regarding wound treatment.

For this reason, the European Academy of Wound Technology (EAWT) has been set up. We can now offer professionals who wish to supplement their practical skills a training scheme validated by a panel of international experts. A single, experimental training course is proposed, based on practical skills, wound simulations on anatomical models and real clinical situations. The course ends with an evaluation of the abilities of each participant to use these techniques efficiently. Modern teaching resources (video, live demonstrations by the organisers, courses run by experienced training professionals) allow rapid acquisition of the techniques essential in everyday practice and those which will be used in the future.

Open to all who wish to complete their specialised training in wound management, this three-day course will be organised in English on May 10, 11 and 12, 2006 and in French on November 22, 23 and 24, 2006. The number of places is limited to 36 doctors and 36 registered nurses per session. It is covered by Continuing Training arrangements, training reference number 52490161949
