wound care champion program

One in four people in Ontario health-care settings experience a pressure injury on any given day even though they’re preventable. To help address an increase in acute and hard-to-heal wounds, Wounds Canada and RNAO are launching a program designed to deliver evidence-informed, interdisciplinary proficient-level wound education for front-line clinicians. The Wound Care Champion Program (WCCP) will train regulated health professionals in Ontario as wound care champions, with 200 spots to be funded by the provincial Ministry of Health.

To learn more about the WCCP or to apply for one of the 200 funded registrations for regulated health professionals working in Ontario, please visit the Wound Care Champion Program web page
