What Wound Specialists Are Saying

"Selecting the correct wound dressing can make a huge difference for patient outcomes. I believe all clinicians should be empowered with knowing all the different dressings and how they work in order to better choose the best wound dressing possible for each patient."

Cindy Bailey -

RN, BSN, WCC, AWCC

"The burden of chronic disease care in the United States continues to grow at a rapid rate, and the result is more and more individuals suffering from chronic wounds. Today's healthcare champions need the most up-to-date evidenced based training and advanced competencies to ensure their patients receive the highest levels of care."

Ryan Dirks -

PA-C

"Advancing your education, knowledge and skills shows a commitment to lifelong learning, a passion for your work, and most importantly, a dedication to your patients and their well-being. I always say, "you cannot know everything, but you have the ability to learn anything". With wound management, we are entrusted with providing the best care, resources and knowledge to achieve optimal outcomes for our patients. This is often life and limb saving. The best way to ensure this success, is through education and certification. It helps to establish a standard, set expectations and inform all stakeholders and consumers you are committed to being the best wound provider possible within your scope of practice."

Dr. Heather Hettrick -

PT, PhD, CWS, CLT, CLWT, AWCC

"As a patient advocate and a clinician, I am a strong proponent in continuously improving your education, knowledge, and skill set as we provide individualized care to patients with increasing co-morbidities in today's healthcare environment. Certifications validate our competency and allows the public to trust each of us in providing them with current best practices in a field where so many barriers exist."

Frank Aviles -

PT, CWS, FACCWS, CLT, AWCC, MLDICDT Instructor

"This new training and wound care certification will elevate the standard of care for providers, to a whole new level. Patients will benefit the most as they will receive care from the most qualified professionals in the industry."

Michael Warshaw -

DPM, CPC

There are never enough opportunities to nurture expertise, but this program will become a premier venue for those who seek a solid base for professional wound practice; well-rounded approach to include selection of treatment options that integrates value analysis of medical devices"
