This resource is very informative and engaging but i got lost a bit in the earlier part of the video. There are too much information that i cant understand. in the case study, the lecturer was talking about the type and subtype of dressing that the wound need but i guess i was waiting for her to say an example of the dressing or how she is going to dress it, like mention the dressing that she would specifically use. It is probably just me, anyway, i found the information on the later videos. Over all this is a good resource.

Course Overview

Topics include:

  • The functions and limitations of wound dressings
  • The main classes and functions of wound dressings
  • The purpose and properties of common wound dressings
  • The components to consider in implementing a wound dressing regimen

Target audience

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

Purpose

Enhance knowledge and skills in regard to understanding the various categories and types of wound dressings available, their function and their use in clinical practice.

Need

Wound dressings are a vital component where a wound requires management by a healthcare professional. There are currently a plethora of wound dressings available, with more being released every year. This can create confusion for nurses when trying to choose a wound dressing. Understanding wound dressings can assist the nurse to select an appropriate wound dressing that will create the ideal local wound environment to achieve the identified objective/s. Knowledge and confidence regarding in choosing and using wound dressings can enhance wound progress and contribute to an optimal patient outcome. Wound dressings can contribute significantly to resource use, related to the frequency of dressing changes, the time taken to change wound dressings and the cost of the dressings themselves. Education and training in wound dressings has been demonstrated to improve knowledge, product selection and reduce dressing change frequency. Ultimately this improves outcomes.

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.
