Abstract: A wise decision when choosing adequate products to treat chronic wounds depends on proper diagnosis and characterization of the chronic wound. Developing skills for treating and diagnosing chronic wounds requires not only academic knowledge, but also other types of knowledge not easily acquired through traditional instructional methodologies. The expertise obtained by individuals, when they are solving real life practical cases, is very important to diagnose and correctly treat chronic wounds. This additional empirical knowledge is not easily transmitted in classrooms, and so the academic instruction should be completed with real life practical examples and practical cases. The e-Fer Web Based Learning Environment for chronic wounds, is a case based learning tool for assisting nursing students to develop skills for diagnosing and treating chronic wounds. This paper will briefly describe some characteristics of the platform, and our main goal is to present our novel approach to implement the adaptive version of the learning environment. We are also going to discuss our user model, and the types of learning support that we decided to implement in the system.
