The education and workforce enabler workstream is collaborating with the other workstreams to consider the workforce issues and educational needs of all those involved in care delivery including patients, carers and non-clinical staff.

Updates from the Education and Workforce Workstream:

The education and workforce enabler workstream is currently building on the work from the Leading Change Adding Value framework for wound assessment, identifying competencies for each professional role involved in wound care. These will include the topics of wound prevention, wound assessment, and wound management.

The workstream is also reviewing current wound care education provision, with a focus on free-to-access, online bite-sized learning opportunities. It is seeking to identify what is needed and what is already available. The workstream will be seeking information from the Stakeholder Forums about this and their views on the quality and accessibility of what is already provided.

Resources from the Education and Workforce Workstream:

E-learning sessions designed to build fundamental wound care knowledge & skills across the health and care workforce.

The NWCSP Education workstream commissioned Skills for Health to lead the development of a draft multi-professional National Wound Care Core Capabilities Framework for England. This framework aims to be a single, consistent and comprehensive framework, developed by and for a multi-professional audience and contains the core capabilities which identify and describe the knowledge and skills required by health and care practitioners to deliver high-quality, personalised wound care.


Details on Education courses for Wound Care can be found below.
