HMP announces 12 new nationwide course locations for the 2019 Wound Certification Prep Course (WCPC), a comprehensive wound care training program.

Three of the 12 programs will be co-located with HMP’s medical conferences: the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring and Fall meetings and the Amputation Prevention Symposium (AMP).

WCPC reportedly the only review course recommended by the American Board of Wound Management (ABWM) Foundation, is a 2-day program designed for clinicians interested in preparing for wound certification board examinations including the Certified Wound Care Associate (CWCA), Certified Wound Specialist (CWS), and Certified Wound Specialist Physician (CWSP). It is also relevant for those professionals interested in becoming re-certified, or gaining a more advanced understanding of wound care.

Developed and taught by a team of nationally recognized, interdisciplinary ABWM-certified wound care educators, the course provides evidence-based and patient-centric approaches to wound care and management. Onsite testing is available following each course, explains HMP in a media release.

“We recognize the growing importance of advanced education in wound management, and WCPC has become a key driver for improving the quality of wound care for patients,” says Tiffney Oliver, vice president of Wound Care, HMP, in the release.

“Along with Acelity, a KCI company, who is a platinum sponsor of the program, we are committed to providing wound care professionals with the most comprehensive, practical wound care education and look forward to helping even more clinicians achieve their certification in 2019.”
