Wound care management is essential when responsible for patients that have chronic and acute wounds. Our course provides the latest research and treatment guideline on wound management and care.

The course aims to give the candidate a better understand on how to care and manage wounds.


Wound care and management is important because chronic wounds can have serious consequences. Non-healing wounds require specializedcare because underlying, complex conditions prevent the wound from going through the expected healing stages. It is important to be able to recognise if a wound is healing unassisted or if intervention is needed.

Wound dressings should provide optimum conditions for wound healing, while protecting the wound from infection with microorganisms and further trauma. It is important that the dressings be removed without causing trauma and thereby increasing wound healing time or to avoid further damage to the wound surface during dressing changes.

The course will cover the following:

Anatomy and function of the skin

Definitions of different wounds

The Physiological Process of Wound Healing

Factors both Intrinsic & Extrinsic

Wound Assessment


Types of Dressing Materials and their Properties

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
