Excellent presentation of aseptic technique when dealing with wound care. As many patients are diabetic that require ulcers etc dressed on a regular basis, they are at an extremely high risk for infection. It is our job as nurses to minimise or eradicate that risk and encourage effective healing of those wounds that are undermined. More videos on wound care please!

Course Overview

Topics include:

  • Definitions and terminology
  • Importance of aseptic technique
  • Different techniques
  • Practical demonstration of performing aseptic technique

Target audience

Health professionals working in acute care, aged care, outpatient departments, General Practice and domiciliary settings who manage people requiring a wound dressing.


Refresh knowledge on how to correctly perform a wound dressing with an aseptic non-touch technique.


Wound cleansing aims to remove excess exudate, dressing remnants and non-viable tissue from the wound to promote healing and reduce infection risk. Appropriate wound cleansing can remove the local barriers to healing and is an essential element in wound management. This seemingly basic and simple procedure can be quite complex and requires assessment and an understanding of the person and their wound. Whilst there is a focus on the products and solutions suitable for wound cleansing, there is a lack of practical guidance on how to actually cleanse wounds. Utilising the appropriate processes for wound cleansing will benefit patients.

Health professionals in Australia that are registered with AHPRA are required to obtain continuing professional development (CPD) hours/points each year that relates to their context of practice, in order to comply with mandatory regulatory requirements.
