Courses will bring comprehensive wound management education to more US cities, laying the groundwork for improved patient care

...we are committed to providing wound care professionals with the most comprehensive, practical wound care education and look forward to helping even more clinicians achieve their certification in 2019.

HMP, a leader in healthcare events and education, today announced twelve new course locations for the 2019 Wound Certification Prep Course (WCPC), the leading comprehensive wound care training program. Based upon the ongoing demand for clinicians to possess increased specialized knowledge in wound management, WCPC will be expanding its course to 12 cities nationwide, including San Francisco, Philadelphia, Nashville, and Chicago. Furthermore, three of the 12 programs will be co-located with HMP’s leading medical conferences: the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring and Fall meetings, the world’s largest wound care educational events; and the Amputation Prevention Symposium (AMP).

WCPC is the only review course recommended by the American Board of Wound Management (ABWM) Foundation, and is a two-day program designed for clinicians interested in preparing for wound certification board examinations including the Certified Wound Care Associate (CWCA®), Certified Wound Specialist (CWS®), and Certified Wound Specialist Physician (CWSP®). It is also relevant for those professionals interested in becoming re-certified, or gaining a more advanced understanding of wound care. Last year, WCPC educated more than 1,000 healthcare professionals. Developed and taught by a team of nationally recognized, interdisciplinary ABWM-certified wound care educators, the course provides evidence-based and patient-centric approaches to wound care and management. To further enhance the convenience of the course, onsite testing is available following each course, providing an immediate opportunity for clinicians to take the respective examination right away while the information is still fresh in their minds.

“We recognize the growing importance of advanced education in wound management and WCPC has become a key driver for improving the quality of wound care for patients,” said Tiffney Oliver, Vice President of Wound Care, HMP. “Along with Acelity, a KCI company, who is a platinum sponsor of the program, we are committed to providing wound care professionals with the most comprehensive, practical wound care education and look forward to helping even more clinicians achieve their certification in 2019.”
