Education & Evidence   


Education & Evidence provides access to education and information about the therapeutic area of wound management. It has been designed so you can decide when and what you study - the choice is entirely up to you! 

Education & Evidence aims to offer a series of modular based courses at different levels, within which you can extend your knowledge of wound care. Interactive patient studies enable you to assess, diagnose and treat patients based on their medical history and the results of clinical tests. You can then find out if your diagnosis and subsequent treatment correlate with the latest thinking in wound care.
