is the conservative
annual cost of wounds to the Australian Health Care System
The Wound Management Innovation CRC, together with Industry Partners have developed a specialised platform dedicated to streamlining the credentialing process.
For the half a million Australians suffering from a chronic wound, Credentialing provides patient and organisational reassurance that a health professional has received the training and skill level reflective of wound expertise.
For some patients, finding a Clinician with wound specialty training and experience can prove as difficult as treating the wound itself. Through credentialing, our aim is to build awareness by creating a centralised national register of Wound Experts.
Do you hold a Bachelor Degree or higher in health or an equivalent level Diploma certificate?
Do you spend a minimum of 30% of your time working on direct, indirect or service related wound activities?
Have you completed a minimum of 30hrs of Wound specialty courses or activities in the last 12 months?
Do you have two referees familiar with your clinical capabilities who can attest to your recent practice?
