Welcome to the Columbia Wound Care Community

2022 IN-PERSON COURSES! - all being held at the Linfield Univ Portland Campus
October 15, 2022 - BWCC (Basic Wound Care Course) 7 hr course


2022 Letter from the CWCC Board:

Columbia Wound Care Community (CWCC) has 1 more in-person course planned for this year – the Basic Wound Care Course (BWCC), scheduled for October 15th, at the Linfield Portland Campus. 

In 2021, CWCC had all our symposiums virtual, due to COVID restrictions. Over 50 community members including, CWCC Board, dedicated volunteers, speakers, industry partners and our conference staff, spent hundreds of hours transforming our in-person programs to virtual webinars. Most of those presenters didn’t have a clue what they had actually agreed to undertake with this new webinar plan, yet each of them completed their assigned tasks. Together we successfully presented 4 webinars that were well attended and highly evaluated by attendees. Additionally, they attracted participants from across the USA, and even Canada, and were available for 90 days post-conference for attendees!

After holding all the 2021 programs virtually, CWCC is excited to plan for in-person events in 2022!  We so hope you will join us because it is CWCC’s honor to continue to support our expanded wound care community.  We will watch and be mindful of the COVID surges and restrictions and will keep you updated with in-person, and possibly, hybrid plans. Again, we thank you for all your support.

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.
