Education For The Generalist

The CE education links are made possible at no charge by our Corporate Sponsors. They provide healthcare practitioners with current evidence-based wound care information.

AAWC recognizes there are various levels of wound care experience and encourages all clinicians to maintain core competencies in the wound care specialty and to utilize wound care professionals when presented with challenges of complex wounds.

The Educate the Generalist Committee has launched the 1st in a series of PPT templates to be used for lectures or in-services. The first topic is PAD. Access this presentation in Members Only.
