AniCura Wound Conference
Course content and learning objectives
Wound management is a field that many of us intentionally avoids or handles with uncertainty. After this course you will have gained a better understanding of the different wound stages and how to choose the best treatment for each individual case.
Vets will be more confident in knowing when a wound is a candidate for sugical closure or reconstruction, and how to perform this. Nurses will be more independent in handling wound cases and making treatment and dressings decicions based on best practice, giving a better work flow and increasing the amount of wound cases that are treated in your clinic.
Knowledge level and course aim:
The course does not demand any prior knowledge within wound care. The aim is to increase the skills and confidence of vets and nurses in this field, to minimize iatrogenic injuries and prolonged suffering for our patients.
The course will be held in english.
