Managing Scarring in Primary Care

A peer-reviewed, nurse-led module covering the key facets of care for patients with scarring. The module addresses four key areas of care:

  • The physiology of scars; including different scar types and the  healing and maturation process
  • The psychological and social impact of scars
  • Current evidence-based treatments, self-care options and emerging  therapies to reduce scarring
  • Practical guidance and resources for discussing scarring with patients

Revalidation
The new revalidation process was introduced following a recommendation in the 2013 Francis Report, and has, so far, been hailed as a great success. Following completion of the module, you will receive an e-certificate, as well as information for completing the revalidation process.

Relevant for
All primary care healthcare professionals who may come into contact with patients with new or old scar tissue.
