Wound management can be challenging for both the individual living with a wound and also for the clinician. Too often this becomes about the “hole in the patient” not the “whole patient”. Wounds can have a negative impact on the individual affecting their quality of life.

This conference will explore a holistic approach to wound management taking into consideration the patient, their health and those factors that may impact on wound healing outcomes.

In the spirit of adult learning, the Conference is delivered in two formats. The live presentations delivered in the Conference Room and there is the online library which is open one month prior to the actual Conference dates. The library is an essential component of the entire Conference program.
