WHIA’s Online Wound Education Program (OWEP) is designed for healthcare professionals seeking to improve their understanding and ability to implement evidence-based principles and practices of wound management. Undergraduate healthcare students may use the OWEP as a useful adjunct to undergraduate learning.
Health services may access the OWEP to maximise staff opportunities for in-service education and continuing professional development in wound management resulting in a more clinically proficient workforce better able to integrate evidence-based recommendations to meet national safety and quality standards for wound prevention and management.
The OWEP modules are interactive using 3D images, simulation techniques, video vignettes and case studies and quizzes, with immediate feedback, to support principles of adult learning. The Australian College of Nursing, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine have endorsed these modules for accrual of continuing professional or adult learning module points.
We recommend all our modules are completed on an annual basis for competency and accreditation purposes. When you purchase a module, you will have unlimited access to that module for 12 months from date of purchase.
