Why become wound care certified?
Wound management is becoming more prevalent in our society as the average life expectancy increases. Conditions associated with the elderly and a growth in diseases such as diabetes and peripheral arterial disease are resulting in a rise of chronic wound sufferers. As a result, the need for qualified individuals who can treat wounds and improve long-term care is needed now more than ever.

Becoming a Certified Wound Care Associate (CWCA®), Certified Wound Specialist (CWS®) or Certified Wound Specialist Physician (CWSP®), is a way in which your patients and the facility you work for can be assured that qualified clinicians are caring for them. Help the wound care community stop the growing epidemic of chronic wounds today.
