Relias has added online wound care and certification exam prep from the Wound Care Education Institute.
The institute, co-founded by Nancy Morgan and Donna Sardina, creates training for nurses, therapists, registered dieticians and physicians. Relias has added a new Advanced Skin Wound and Ostomy library, offering 16 core wound care courses for the multidisciplinary team.
The Skin and Wound Management certification course also is available via PrepSmart, Relias’ exam prep platform. With the PrepSmart platform user can have an 180-day access period and take lessons that keep them engaged. They can customize a study plan and use study-support tools.
Bertelsmann, Relias’s parent company, acquired OnCourse Learning in late 2018, which included healthcare, real estate, and financial services divisions. WCEI was part of the healthcare division that became part of Relias, the company said.
“By bringing the expertise of the Wound Care Education Institute and Relias together, healthcare organizations and their clinicians will be better prepared to heal patients and mitigate risk,” Morgan said. “With their reach across the continuum of care, we’ve found an ideal home as part of the Relias family.”
