There is a lot of information on the web regarding wound care education. But, only a few that are done on the scale of these four websites. If you are new to wound care or just looking to add a few pearls of information give these websites a try. Some of these sites provide CEUs and others don’t. As always, please let me know if there are any other major wound education sites that I have missed.
Smith and Nephew Global Wound Academy
The company take on their website: The Academy offers the learner a series of modular courses at different levels through which you can extend your knowledge of wound care. To this effect, ‘The Learning Zone’ presents the theory of wound management moving from basic principles of physiology to advanced wound care and applications and current research in the management of patients with wounds. In addition to this the interactive patient studies enable you to assess, diagnose and treat patients based on their medical history and the results of the clinical tests.
The company take on their website: The Wound Institute is dedicated to helping clinicians gain a deeper understanding of wound care and treatment. Here you will find practical, evidence-based resources on most major wound types—information that you can apply directly to your patient population. The Wound Institute contains fully accredited CE/CME programs in wound care education, along with relevant case studies and exercises. You will also find interactive animations and streaming videos, to make your experience engaging, useful and rewarding.

With this in mind, we founded this site to provide you, the health care professional, with access to important learning opportunities. We trust that the educational modules you find here will help you in your mission of delivering better patient care outcomes.
The company take on their website: Wound care is usually considered more an art than a science, with multiple layers of complexity. KCI’s wound care education programs are designed to support clinicians’ efforts to navigate through the labyrinth of information on wound types, assessment, care planning, interventions, products and outcomes management.
