Our Wound Care training course comprehensively covers the various types of wounds, how they occur and how to manage them, as well as leg ulcers and compression bandaging.

This course involves a practical session and delegates will receive a competence based framework document to work through under the supervision of a mentor in their place of work.

This Wound Care course has a recommendation rate of over 99% and is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners. On completion, delegates will be awarded a certificate of attendance and 6 CPD points.

All Annie Barr Associates clinical courses are led by trainers who are qualified healthcare professionals with a wealth of clinical and teaching experience. Non-clinical courses are delivered by suitably qualified and experienced professionals who are experts on the subject matter.

Please note: This is a full day course. Delegates are asked to arrive at the venue for registration at 9.30am. The training will take place from 10.00am - 4.00pm.
