In recent years, a wide variety of products have been issued for the prevention and treatment of ulcers, but there are no studies comparing these as a means of evaluating their efficacy. This makes it hard for nurses, as care managers, to choose the best options at the lowest possible cost. Furthermore, each type of injury must be treated differently and certain studies have shown that professionals have difficulty in correctly assessing injury types.
Degree training provides basic knowledge, but this is insufficient for the continuous changes taking place in this field. An increase in the complexity of the patients treated, as well as the wide variety of therapeutic options that the biomedical industry has currently placed on the market, make it difficult for professionals to come to decisions about care and therefore justify the need for postgraduate programmes that help update knowledge based on the best available evidence.
Catalonia has nursing professionals who are expert in the care of patients suffering from burns or affected by chronic wounds; these professionals are nationally recognised. Their practical expertise is essential in training other nursing professionals with the support and endorsement given by the framework of university education.

Before I only used iodine to heal wounds, now I use the knowledge gained in the Master's Degree.Andrea Beltrán
Doing this master's degree has opened for me the doors to research and to new opportunities.Laia Salvador
Two years ago I was doing an internship at the center where I now work. Today I am the one who provides training for my colleagues on wound care and this would not have been possible without doing this master's degree.Luisa Estable
