Following the publication of the National Wound Care Strategy Programme (NWCSP) lower limb recommendations there has not been a better time to challenge sub-optimal lower limb care and to implement a pathway that will improve the outcomes for patients. Knowledgeable clinicians with advanced skills in lower limb wound care are essential to the success of this programme.

This study day will provide delegates with an advanced level of knowledge relating to non-diabetic foot ulceration, lymphoedema and lower limb vascular disease, all key areas of the NWCSP lower limb strategy.

In addition, delegates will receive information relating to the NWCSP lower limb priorities and have the opportunity to ask questions of the Programme Director.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this study day, delegates will have:-

  • A greater understanding of the evidence-based interventions that make up the NWCSP lower limb recommendations and their role in implementing these.
  • An enhanced knowledge of lower limb vascular assessment and the clinical interventions used to treat lower limb vascular disease.
  • A greater understanding of non-diabetic foot ulceration and the evidence-based approach to managing this condition.
  • A greater understanding of lower limb oedema and how unmanaged disease progression can lead to avoidable complications.


There will also be an interactive virtual exhibition of wound care products and preventative aids from our industry partners.


All delegates will receive a certificate of attendance on completing the course.
