Prevention and Management of Diabetic Foot Ulcers (OHA)

Online

Summary

The Ontario Hospital Association and the Canadian Association of Wound Care (CAWC) have partnered to create the Foundations of Wound Care program. This program includes four online training modules that provide a basic knowledge of wound management and prevention. The Foundations of Wound Care program is a prerequisite to the CAWC Learning Series, a three-day live program led by wound care experts.

There are four modules in the Foundations of Wound Care program providing the flexibility to focus on a specific wound type if needed. The series provides:

1. Introduction to Wounds

2. Prevention and Management of Venous Leg Ulcers

3. Prevention and Management of Pressure Ulcers

4. Prevention and Management of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Each module is a stand-alone program; take one or all four, depending on your interest and needs. A certificate of learning is provided upon successful completion of each module.

Prevention and Management of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

This is the fourth module in the series and provides an educational framework for health care providers to achieve a basic level of competence in the management of diabetic persons with foot ulcerations. The overall aim of the module is to equip health care providers with the assessment and management skills required to care for patients with diabetic foot ulcers.
