Online learning through the Coronavirus pandemic

May 11th, 2020

In light of the ongoing situation with Coronavirus, many industry events have been postponed or even cancelled. We had a packed calendar at the start of the year, but understandably conferences, trade shows and workshops have been impacted by the pandemic – especially as so many of the attendees work with some of the most vulnerable in society.

Despite this, some organisations are still creating content that attendees can access online. If you’ve missed out on a face-to-face event in the last few months, here are some online resources that you can use in the meantime.


Journal of Community Nursing

The JCN runs educational sessions via Facebook Live. Presented by clinical experts, the talks also offer the opportunity to ask questions in interactive Q&A sessions. In addition, attendees can download certificates of attendance after the event. See the next events here.


Also, keep an eye out for digital Venous Leg Ulcer events. Although all future events have been cancelled until further notice, in April, VLU ran their first ever digital study day. Visit this page for information on future events.


Wound Care Today

There is a wealth of e-learning information on the Wound Care Today website. The modules were developed by Wound Care Trust and count towards your revalidation or CPD. Search the full list of online courses here.


Wound Care Today also hosts many Facebook Live events. Find more information here.


Nursing in Practice

The NIP website is another great website for e-learning and CPD for nurses. Some modules require a subscription, but many are accessible for free. See them here.


European Wound Management Association

The EWMA 2020 conference has been postponed until later in the year. But this doesn’t mean there aren’t events for you to get involved in. They are hosting webinars online and also have frequently updated podcasts. Find out more information from their website.
