About this course

Help, I have created a MONSTER (wound)! 

Managing wounds and large skin reconstructions can be extremely challenging. This course will help you to utilise wound management and skin reconstruction techniques to get those monsters under control. It is a two-day theoretical and practical course. We will discuss wound healing, how to manage open wounds and skin reconstruction techniques. You will be able to practise and consolidate this theoretical knowledge. The cadaver workshops will include tension relieving techniques, subdermal pattern flaps, axial pattern flaps and skin grafts.

Why do this course?
This course will be excellent for anyone in general practice managing open wounds or performing surgery to remove skin masses.
