Course Overview

Topics include:

  • Wound aetiology
  • Tissue identification
  • Patient and wound-related factors that will impact on wound cleansing
  • Common solutions used for wound cleansing
  • Demonstration of techniques, products and equipment

Target audience

All health professionals working in a variety of health care settings who deal with wounds and wound care on a regular basis.

Purpose

Enhance knowledge, skills and confidence with regards to effective wound cleansing and debridement.

Need

Wound cleansing aims to remove excess exudate, dressing remnants and non-viable tissue from the wound to promote healing and reduce infection risk. The various types of debridement are forms of wound cleansing. Whilst health professionals are familiar with the ritual of wound cleansing, many may lack the skills and confidence to effectively cleanse wounds. 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 and is as important as wound dressing product selection.

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.
