The management of complicated and challenging wounds places a significant burden on healthcare systems.
Breaking the cycle of hard to heal wounds requires a proactive approach that includes recognising and understanding the extent of the problem, early intervention using advanced wound technologies that improve healing rates, reduce clinical time, avoid hospital admission and improve patient satisfaction.
The meeting will look at the use of NPWT as an adjunct therapy whilst also providing an interactive forum for panel discussions promoting an atmosphere for open and inclusive learning whilst also providing an opportunity for delegates to participate in practical hands on learning sessions throughout this exciting two day event.
