In the ever changing healthcare landscape, community care paramedics play a critical role in the initial triage, treatment, and overall well-being of patients. One aspect that often demands swift and effective attention is wound care. Recognizing this need, we have developed our state-of-the-art Paramedic Wound Associate Course. Let's learn more about it below!

About the Course

The Paramedic Wound Associate Course, offered by the Wound, Ostomy, and Continence

Institute, is designed to provide community care paramedics with the ability to provide optimal wound care in collaboration with an interprofessional team.

It is a competency-based, self-paced, online foundational course in wound management, expertly guided by a team of Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) certified Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence (NSWOCs) and in collaboration with a group of community paramedics. On-request onsite education programs, led by NSWOCs, are also available.

The course takes participants on a journey through enlightening modules, each presented from the unique perspective of a first responder actively engaged in the front lines of emergency response. From initial assessment to proactive measures aimed at minimizing further harm, every module is designed to enhance the paramedic's ability to intervene promptly and appropriately.

Why this Matters

The Paramedic Wound Care Associate Course addresses a critical aspect of patient care that all paramedics require expert-level knowledge in. By empowering paramedics with the skills and knowledge needed for optimal wound care, the course not only enhances the quality of care provided but also contributes to a more efficient and streamlined healthcare system.
