Health professionals keen to learn about wounds management
More than 150 nurses, aged care workers, doctors, Aboriginal health workers and podiatrists from across the region will attend a sold-out wounds management workshop at the Dubbo RSL this Saturday.
Wounds impact on many of our most vulnerable people including the elderly, people with diabetes, and those who have had surgery and other procedures such as skin cancer removal. This practical workshop will help local practitioners develop skills in the assessment, treatment and management of complicated wounds.
This event is delivered by the Western NSW Primary Health Network (WNSW PHN), an organisation that funds primary health care services and supports General Practices and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services, and Wounds Australia, the peak national body for Wounds Management. more...
