Wound manage­ment is a dynamic and evolving area of practice in health care today. Wounds present complex challenges and pivotal oppor­tu­ni­ties for multi­dis­ci­pli­nary teams to collab­o­rate and improve the health status of patients. This confer­ence addresses current scien­tific, clinical and profes­sional practice issues across care settings related to acute and chronic wounds, including evidence-based and multi­dis­ci­pli­nary strate­gies for assessing and inter­vening to achieve successful outcomes. Speakers will assume that partic­i­pants have a basic under­standing of wound manage­ment princi­ples. Presen­ta­tions will update the profes­sional with recent changes to practice. Teaching methods include lecture, discus­sion and case studies.

This confer­ence is intended for nurses, nurse practi­tioners and other inter­ested health care profes­sionals in all settings including acute, ambula­tory, home health, hospice, long-term, rehabil­i­ta­tion and transi­tional care.
