Statement of purpose
Chronic wounds, such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers, are commonly encountered by physicians in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Family physicians are the key, to prevention, early recognition, treatment, and comprehensive management of patients with chronic wounds.

Determination of need was done by surveys of potential learners, needed health outcomes and identified new skills, such as compression therapy and meets the gap in knowledge.

Course objectives
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
1. Accurately diagnose pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers;
2. Create appropriate management plans educate patients and caregivers self-management skills, for wound care;
3. Apply compression dressings to non-ischemic leg ulcers; and
4. Provide leadership for improvement in wound care.
