Wounds Australia as the national standard setting organisation for wound management is developing a credentialing program for health professionals in wound management.

Our credentialing program aims to deliver an interdisciplinary credentialing system which health professionals can be recognised as wound management specialists by Wounds Australia.

Our credentialing program will be governed by Wounds Australia and its Members.

The program also falls within the Wounds Strategic Objectives:

  • Membership – the support health care professionals specialising in wound care and management.
  • Awareness - to raise awareness of wound care and wound healing particularly among people at risk of chronic wounds.

The Program is expected to be launched in Mid 2019.

The draft framework for the Wounds Australia Credentialing Program is available to download from the following link.
