Wound Management




Develop the knowledge and expertise you need to assist patients with complex wounds. This post-diploma certificate program is the only one of its kind in Canada. 

There is an increasing demand for health care professionals with the knowledge and expertise required to work in a practice setting with patients who have complex wounds resulting from a variety of disease pathologies and factors.

While the program focuses on the management of all complex wounds, particular attention is paid to populations that are at greater risk of developing wounds. As well, prevention of the exacerbation of wounds is covered. This is part of a standardized approach to wound management involving all members of an interdisciplinary wound management team.


Nursing is all about relational practices...a thirst for learning, the ability to think critically and an understanding of the importance of creating relationships with one another.
