Empowering WOC Nurses. Enhancing Wound Care Teams.

The Wound Treatment Associate (WTA) Program increases the recognition of the WOC specialty nurse as an expert clinician with the skills needed to develop and direct facility-wide skin and wound care. By teaching WTA participants, the WOC nurse further expands his/her leadership role and enhances the value of the WOC nursing specialty.
 
The WTA Program develops wound treatment associates to act as an extension of the WOC nursing reach in healthcare facilities, enabling the WTA graduates to assist in:
  • Eliminating avoidable pressure injuries.
  • Preventing wound complications.
  • Promoting optimal patient outcomes.
  • Providing education to patients, caregivers and team members.
By having wound treatment associates act as WOC nurse extenders, the WOC nurse will have more time to treat patients with complex issues and manage skin care on a facility/agency-wide level.

Investment Worth Making

Through clinically and cost effective wound management, your wound care team will have improved wound assessment skills, will help improve patient outcomes and will facilitate clearer documentation to meet regulatory needs.

Because of the program's flexibility, your practice will benefit from participants needing less time off work and will save money on travel/housing costs that would be acquired if participants attended an offsite wound course.

Cost of the WTA Program:
  • Flat fee of $2,500 for a two-year license.
  • Additional $150 fee per person for up to 100 participants.
  • Each participant will receive a printed workbook.
  • There is no limit to the number of times the course can be offered during a two-year time frame, as long as the number of participants does not exceed 100.
