This intense four-day, 40-hour live course is approved by the UHMS & NBDHMT as an Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine and intended for a wide audience of health care providers involved in advanced wound care management, including the physician, registered nurse, nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, registered respiratory therapist, physical therapist, physician's assistant, EMT's and paramedics.
The livestream webinar version of this course DOES now apply to CHT/CHRN or those pursuing CHT/CHRN through NBDHMT (as of 1 July 2020).
This course also applies to those pursuing CHS/CHWS through the American Board of Wound Healing (ABWH).
Please note that the American Board of Wound Healing (ABWH) offers added qualifications similar to those offered by the NBDHT. The ABWH offers Certified Hyperbaric Specialist (CHS) and Certified Hyperbaric & Wound Specialist (CHWS). The UHMS recognizes both CHT/CHRN and CHS/CHWS - you can find the UHMS position statement here.
Wound Care Education Partners is implementing a "COVID-19 Contingency Plan" for moving forward with hyperbaric training. Wound Care Education Partners has received UHMS approval to hold the hyperbaric training via live stream webinar format. Instruction will be the same as a face to face training, with the goal of reducing human-to-human physical contact and reducing travel.
