Wound management curriculum for student nurses - EQF level 4
This curriculum presents a framework and key content on skin integrity and wound care that is recommended for inclusion in student nurse curricula (general nurse education). With this curriculum, EWMA aims to provide a starting point for increased and standardised education in wound care.
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.
In this open access article, you can read about in implementation of the EWMA Wound Curricula targeting EQF levels 5 and 6 into an existing E-Learning and Blended-Learning Program in Wound Care for Undergraduate Nursing Students in Switzerland.
