Systagenix sponsors CME accredited wound care education
Systagenix announced today the launch and sponsorship of a new wound care educational e-learning programme for qualified medical professionals entering the field of wound care and experienced specialist nurses. The programme is organised by the Welsh Wound Innovation Centre in cooperation with Commelius Solutions and made available on www.WoundCareEducation.net.
The first module, ‘Fundamental knowledge for wound care’, is awarded 1 European CME credit (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). The UEMS-EACCME has mutual recognition agreements with the American Medical Association (AMA) for live events and e-learning materials.
‘It is good to see companies, like Systagenix, realising the value of providing non-promotional education for wound care clinicians around the world, and helping to bring together international data and evidence in a convenient and easily accessible way,’ said Jacqui Fletcher, Clinical Strategy Director at the Welsh Wound Innovation Centre, ‘The e-learning modules have been designed to lead wound care clinicians through topics that can help improve their current clinical practice such as anatomy and physiology, evidenced-based medicine, wound assessment, classification and management.’.
Peter Huntley, Systagenix Senior Vice President, added: ‘We are proud to sponsor the development and launch of this new education programme and believe it will deliver significant value to wound care clinicians worldwide’.
