UNIVERSITY APPROVED PROGRAMME

WE THINK THAT IT’S IMPORTANT FOR ALL HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS TO HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAR AND RELEVANT WOUND CARE EDUCATION.

That’s why we focus on providing free wound care education that you can rely on and trust through a variety of support and training.

ONLINE WOUND CARE EDUCATION

Our online education is ideal for a basic understanding of wound care.  Test your knowledge sections and certificates are also available to download once the module has been completed. It’s freely available to all!

Advanced Medical Solutions Group plc (AMS) is a public, UK based business that develops, manufactures and markets innovative products in the following areas: accelerating healing and managing wounds; minimising adverse surgical outcomes; and sealing and closing tissue. Principally, this includes the ActivHeal® range of advanced wound care and the LiquiBand range of topical skin adhesives.

We manufacture and develop all of our wound care dressings at our world class facility in Winsford, Cheshire making it easy to respond to the needs of both the clinician and their patients here in the UK.

We encourage feedback from clinicians to support our continuous product development programmes, ensuring our dressings are tailored to the needs of their patients and Trusts.

COMPREHENSIVE MODULAR PLATFORM FOR WOUND CARE EDUCATION

We have collaborated with the University of Chester’s Faculty of Health and Social Care to develop a wound care educational programme which provides a comprehensive modular platform for wound care education. The programme is to be offered to healthcare professionals in a series of five modules, including basic skin anatomy and physiology, wound healing, wound assessment, dressing selection, and wound classification/management. The programme also includes competency tests for the clinician to complete and ActivHeal® certificates for the clinicians’ Continuing Professional Development (CPD) files. This collaboration is a successful indication of how industry can work closely with an academic institution to develop education with the potential to directly benefit healthcare professionals who treat patients with wounds.

REAL INSIGHT INTO THE WOUND CARE INDUSTRY.

AMS chose to work with the University on the programme due to the Faculty’s commitment to, and credibility in, health and social care. Engagement with the University has ensured that the content of the programme is objectively assessed and relevant to current wound care treatment regimes. This collaboration will ensure that the package is reviewed annually to ensure continued accuracy and relevance.

Chris Meredith, Chief Executive Officer of AMS, explained ‘Working alongside the University of Chester has been an ideal partnership.  Not only has it allowed us to benefit the wound care market with appropriate high quality education, but it also provides this at no cost to the NHS.’

Professor Mike Thomas, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic) and Dean of the Faculty of Health and Social Care, at the University, said ‘Working alongside a global medical devices manufacturer like Advanced Medical Solutions gives the University of Chester real insight into the wound care industry. Coupling our expertise illustrates how industry and academic institutions can work together to benefit healthcare professionals by providing them with contemporary and relevant, clinically applied education.
