Education and Training

KCI Medical Australia through the Advantage Centre and our in-field Clinical Support, work closely with Medical and Surgical Registrars, Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Unit Managers, Clinical Education Managers, Podiatrists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists from various hospital networks on a national level to increase their skills in wound care and V.A.C.® Therapy.

Our clinical team was introduced nationally in 2005 and in this time we have provided advanced theoretical and practical skill education to all level clinicians and hospital administrators from the public, private and community care settings. Over 1,000 clinicians are trained each year at the Advantage Centre in Sydney, and through our infield Advantage Centre Roadshows continuously operating in regional and metropolitan areas.
