Learn how to manage wound infection as a healthcare professional

In today’s healthcare landscape, the prudent use of antimicrobials is more critical than ever, especially in the context of wound care.

Understanding the principles of antimicrobial stewardship is not only important for optimizing patient outcomes but also for combating the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance.

Throughout the course, participants engage with interactive lectures, case studies, and practical exercises, fostering a dynamic learning experience that enhances retention and application of knowledge in clinical practice.
