Abstract

Wound care competence is an essential component of clinical nursing. However, practice in this area can be determined by tradition rather than evidence. This may be one of the drivers for nurses to enrol in further formal wound care education. This mixed methodology study explores nurses' perceptions of the impact, both personal and professional, of undertaking an online post-registration wound care module. The evidence from this study will add to the knowledge base in this area.
