Malvern, PA (PRWEB) March 23, 2017
The Wound Certification Prep Course (WCPC), a comprehensive educational training program owned and organized by HMP Communications Holdings, LLC, today announced that RestorixHealth® has officially endorsed WCPC as its preferred training program for physicians within its nationwide network of wound centers interested in becoming Certified Wound Specialist Physicians (CWSP®).
This collaborative effort with RestorixHealth® will give its physicians access to a two-day course that provides an evidence-based, patient-centered approach to wound care in preparation for the Certified Wound Specialist Physicians (CWSP®) exam. The CWSP exam is administered immediately following the prep course, enabling physicians to be certified within a three-day span.
“RestorixHealth® chose WCPC because of their commitment to quality healthcare education,” said Jeff Kingery, Vice President of Professional Development at RestorixHealth®. “We recognize the scheduling demands often placed on physicians and believe that this program will eliminate logistical concerns with the convenience of taking the two-day prep course followed by the exam on the third day.”
By becoming CWSP® certified, physicians can improve chronic wound outcomes and further improve the quality of life for their patients. Advocates for certification point to improvements in patient care, job satisfaction, level of competence and interaction with other members of the healthcare team as benefits for the patient, the individual, the team and the employer (1,2).
“We are pleased to work with RestorixHealth® and recognize their commitment to quality healthcare and patient care within their wound healing centers,” said Tiffney Oliver, Vice President, Wound Care and Cardiovascular Devices.
