Veterinary nurses play an active role in the management of wounds. In order to carry out this role effectively and efficiently a good understanding of the processes involved in wound healing is required.

Part of this is the primary wound issues we all think of: Trimming; stitching; bandaging and cleaning are only the first step in wound management.

Complex or complicated wounds require a deeper understanding of wound healing and therapy: New bandage materials made of algae or soaked in honey; stitch techniques that relieve tension.

These and more advanced wound management materials are covered during CAW's Wound Management day. Delegates will consider:

  • How to assess wounds and set objectives
  • Advanced wound management principles: delayed union and second intention healing
  • What to do with delayed healing and chronic wounds
  • How to develop your role in practice
  • How to select and apply dressings
  • Wound closure including tension relieving techniques
