Meeting with the European Commission policy officer in charge of patient safety
As part of the awareness raising activities of the "Joint EPUAP-EWMA Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Patient Safety project
The EWMA Education Committee has established a network for wound management teachers in Europe. This initiative arose from initial activities related to the EWMA Teach the Teacher Project which included Pan-European surveys and focus group interviews of education providers and teachers. These surveys uncovered a desire by teachers for greater support in their teaching of wound management.
The primary objectives of the network are:
The EWMA Teacher Network meets once annually during the EWMA Conference in May.
Currently the network collaborates on an online survey which seeks to understand the current provision of Skin Health and Wound Management teaching as part of the current standard curriculum for undergraduate nurses across Europe.
This survey is the first part of a wider European research project into Skin Health and Wound Management education for undergraduate nurses that is being undertaken by members of the network. The final phase of the project is to gather data on the experiences of student nurses in relation to Skin Health/Skin Integrity and Wound Management during their training to gauge how well prepared they feel for managing individuals with wounds.
The survey is initiated and led by the EWMA Teacher Network Chair, Samantha Holloway.
EWMA hopes that the network will continue to attract teachers from many different countries and institutions, as active participation by all relevant institutions is crucial in ensuring that all views and needs are addressed.
Teachers interested in joining the network are kindly asked to contact the EWMA Secretariat by e-mail email@example.com or phone +45 70 20 03 05.
