  • Skin Tears - Treatment and Prevention
    Topic on skin tear management and prevention, with a concise algorithm which can be used at the point-of-care
  • The Skin
    This topic provides a practical overview of the main cell types and structures of each layer, including stem cells, appendages and nerves and their role in wound healing.
  • Principles of Wound Healing
    Understanding how wound healing occurs or why the process is impaired is essential. This topic reviews principles of wound healing and provides an update on wounds from various perspectives - economic, physiological and pathological. It includes an overview of the different wound types (e.g. acute and chronic, partial and full-thickness, etc), wound healing phases, pathophysiology of chronic wounds, biofilm, and pathological scarring.
  • How to Screen, Assess and Manage Nutrition in Patients with Wounds
    Nutrition plays a major role in wound healing. The main goal of nutrition in wound healing is to provide optimum calories and nutrition to support healing. [1][2] Deficiencies in protein, vitamin D, vitamin C and zinc have been demonstrated to impair wound healing, and are often present among patients with chronic wounds. This topic aims to provide practical guidance to support clinical decisions when screening, assessing and managing nutrition in patients with chronic wounds.
