MALVERN, Pa., April 13, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — HMP Global continues to expand wound care education globally through partnership with Wound Certification Prep Course (WCPC) Singaporeat Changi General Hospital.

Available in in-person, virtual, and on-demand formats offering up to 17 CME/CNE/CPME credits, the WCPC is the only review course recommended by the American Board of Wound Management (ABWM) Foundation for clinicians interested in prepare for the CWCA, CWS, or CWSP Board Certification Exams, recertify, or gain a better understanding of wound care. This is the official prep course for the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC).

“We wanted our clinicians to be certified by the American Board of Wound Management as the gold standard of wound care certification. From our previous experience with the WCPC, we knew this would provide the necessary knowledge in wound care material to prepare them for the certification exam,” said Dr. Derek HoDirector of Wound Healing Center and Vascular Surgery Consultant at Changi General Hospital, Singapore. “We believe the course will benefit the professional development of our staff and improve the quality of care provided to our patients.”

WCPC originally worked with Changi General Hospital in 2017, when 25 nurses and doctors participated in a two-day private in-person course to prepare for their wound certification exams and keep up to date with the latest practices in wound management. This year will be the first private virtual program WCPC is conducting for the Singapore hospital.

“As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are focused on innovative ways to provide high-quality education programs for healthcare professionals,” said Tiffney Oliver, Vice President, Wound Care Learning Network, HMP Education. “The expansion of our medical education portfolio globally marks an important milestone for our business and for our wound care division. We look forward to continuing to better understand each market we enter to ensure that We provide valuable and exceptional training to help healthcare professionals around the world improve patient care.

Through the private virtual program, clinicians participate in a 3-hour virtual session, twice a week, over a three-week period. Six virtual sessions will take place in total.
The WCPC offers a pass rate of 94% on exams distributed by the ABWM. Since 2017, WCPC has hosted in-person and virtual private classes, at rehabilitation centers, residency programs and hospitals within United States and globally.
