The CAWC offers opportunities to health-care professionals using various methods to provide flexible, interprofessional education that supports the learning needs and professional career growth in the areas of skin health, wound prevention and management. The strength of the programs lies not only in their content and delivery methods, but also because they are part of a continuum of learning aimed at improving the practice of health-care professionals all levels, in all settings and across the entire country. Because our educational programs are linked to our publications, social media channels and conference, the messages are reinforced and accessible regardless of the learning style of the HCP. This "layering" is one of the strength’s of CAWC Education.
Established in 1995, the Canadian Association of Wound Care (CAWC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing skin health and wound management in Canada. Dedicated staff and volunteers work to improve the health of Canadians at risk for skin breakdown and the practice of the health-care professionals who care for them.
Friends of the organization include health-care professionals and students, researchers, corporate supporters, government decision-makers, caregivers and, most importantly, patients.
