Why Wound Care Certification Is “Just What the Doctor Ordered”
The continued rise in the number of patients living longer with chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, and the corresponding increase in the incidence of acute and chronic wounds, creates a major challenge for physicians. Recent advances in wound dressing technologies and wound management techniques positions wound management as one of the most exciting and dynamic areas of patient care.
Becoming certified in wound care allows you to work right at the heart of this fast-moving area, distinguish yourself from your colleagues and provide the best possible care to your patients. Wound care certification for doctors provides lifetime benefits:
- Improve patient satisfaction – Reassure your patients that you are an expert in the field of wound management, not just by virtue of being a physician, but through your commitment in fulfilling the demands of certification.
- Lead a wound care team – Put yourself in the position where you are equipped to lead the multi-disciplinary teams essential in providing evidence-based care to patients with wounds.
- Expand your opportunities as a medical practitioner – Discover exciting new avenues which present themselves, as a lecturer, consultant, or teacher. These new roles may supplement an active practice, or may replace it entirely, depending on your own preference.
- Reduce costs in private practice or within a facility – Learn how to apply cost containment and cost effectiveness strategies, saving valuable resources in your own practice or making you attractive to employers.
- Protect yourself legally – Give yourself added protection against litigation by using standard-based and evidence-based practices. Learn how to rationalize care and be able to ensure that care offered is based on the standards set by Medicare and other government bodies.
In this age of specialization, the physician who can offer a dedicated and specialist service to patients or an employer enjoys a competitive edge over colleagues.
