EWMA has published several curricula aiming to standardise education of physicians and nurses involved in wound management:

In the period 2017-2020, EWMA has published on a series of European curricula for post registration qualification of nurses.
The aim of this initiative is to support more standardised content in the existing and future educational programmes used in levels 5-7 of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
The curricula have been published as online supplements to the Journal of Wound Care.
EWMA works towards a close collaboration with European nurse organisations as well as educational institutions to implement these common curricula.
The EQF level 7 curriculum was published in July 2020.
The EQF level 6 curriculum was published in February 2019.

In Spring 2014, a EWMA working group developed a curriculum for physicians involved in wound care, with the aim to ensure that they have a sufficient level of expertise within the area to provide efficient and safe treatment of their patients. The curriculum was submitted for adoption by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) in April 2015.
In this episode of the EWMA podcasts, Samantha Holloway, Chair of the EWMA Education Committee and Teacher Network, speaks to Sebastian Probst and Ida Verheyen-Cronau about the standardisation of the wound education in Europe. Both podcast guests share their experience in implementation of the EWMA level 5 and 6 post-registration curricula for nurses in Switzerland and Germany.
