International Wound Management Conference 2016

To be held on 28 June 2016 at the University of Salford, Manchester.

Wound care is considered during the assessment and constant re-evaluation of the patient, identifying important changes and commencing interventions to promote desirable outcomes. Therefore, those responsible for making clinical decisions about the patients in their care have taken on of greater levels of independence for the clinical judgement made.

Technological advances have required clinicians to develop new areas of knowledge and skills and new roles have emerged as a consequence.

An exciting aspect to the programme is a range of expert-led wound care workshops. In these workshops real people will act as patients and will be wearing simulated wounds on their bodies that replicate those seen in clinical practice. The experts and simulated patients leading the workshops will be sharing, demonstrating and talking about the assessment and management, and impact of the complex wounds to aid practitioner’s development of tissue viability skills and knowledge.

To register, please contact Kathryn Wilsher at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or telephone 0161 295 3720.  BBA Members may quote WOUND16 to qualify for a discounted rate of £200 + VAT.
