Despite modern medicine’s advances, the lowly pressure ulcer represents a major health threat to patients with reduced mobility, chronic disease, and the elderly. It can affect mobility, nutritional intake, elimination and psychological well-being.
A comprehensive Pressure Ulcers eCourse is now available from the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) to provide nurses with the motivation,knowledge and skills to more effectively assess, prevent and treat pressure ulcers.
The online course consists of six modules, and includes pain management, repositioning, cleansing and surgery. Learning activities include 123 components, from narrated video presentations, unit quizzes, learning games / simulations, handouts, links to other resources and a choice of final examinations.
Scoring over 80% on the final exam results in a personalized certificate of course completion.
Course modules and exams are provided without fee as part of CLPNA’s educational strategy.
