Welcome to the Columbia Wound Care Community

Since 2007, the Columbia Wound Care Community (CWCC) meetings have been a place for wound care practitioners from distinct medical systems throughout Oregon and Washington to gather and share their knowledge as a community of doctors, nurses, therapists, educators and students who find wound healing a fascinating and vital subject. Because this pandemic limits travel for patients to wound clinics, it is now imperative that the CWCC continues its mission to raise community awareness of scientific advances in wound care and to be active as a resource to wound care providers through education, consultation, and promotion of evidence-based, advanced wound care practice.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we held our first ever Virtual Meeting for the Advanced Wound Care Symposium on “Adjunct Therapies In Wound Healing”. This symposium has been recorded. It is available for purchase and accredited for enduring credits. If you did not register and attend the Live course, you can still register for the Recorded Session for the knowledge and credits until October 1st. Please register on the Recorded CME page.

Our Basic Wound Care Class is scheduled for October 17th and will also be held as a Virtual Meeting. It is open for registration, and we hope you can join us!  It is CWCC’s honor to continue to support the wound care community during this crisis. 

Sincerely,

Helen D. Christians MOTL, WCC

Our Mission and History

Our Mission
To raise community awareness of scientific advances in wound care and to be a resource to wound care providers through education, consultation, and promotion of evidence-based, advanced wound care practice.

Our History
The Columbia Wound Care Community (CWCC), formerly Columbia Wound Care Consortium, was founded in 2007 by a group of wound care physicians, nurses, and therapists in the Portland / Vancouver Metropolitan Area. This group of wound care specialists joined together to promote the fields of wound medicine and hyperbaric medicine. They shared a philosophy of pooling resources and sharing information between local experts to benefit providers and those in need of specialized care required to treat hard to heal wounds. For the past 12 years, CWCC has provided CEU/CME certified advanced practice symposiums and basic wound care workshops at low cost that are open to the multiple professions in the wound care community and students training in these professions.
