Wounds International is holding its first international wound care conference in Cape Town in February 2011, working in partnership with UBUNTU Wound Healing, WHASA (Wound Healing Association of Southern Africa), WAWLC (World Alliance of Wound and Lymphedema Care) and the WUWHS (World Union of Wound Healing Societies).
This conference aims to improve the provision of wound management services for patients worldwide, using tools that can inform practice, and help educate all those who attend through the sharing of clinical experiences. By highlighting variations in practice across different countries, the conference will identify the main challenges to delivering effective wound care globally and present a plan to begin to address the issues.
The programme reflects this sharing of knowledge and will provide real-life examples from different clinical settings.
International speakers include John MacDonald (US), Gary Sibbald (Canada), Gregory Weir (SA), Geoff Sussmann (Australia), Keith Harding (UK), Kshitij and Lakshmi K Shankhdhar (India), Xiaobing Fu (China), Bishara Atiyeh (Middle East) and other key experts from around the world.
In addition, interactive 'made easy' sessions will focus on:
- Wound Assessment and Diagnosis
- Impact of Environment and Lack of Resources
- Management of Wound Exudate
- Identifying and Managing Wound Infection
- Setting up a Wound Clinic
- Management of Lower Limb Oedema
- Offloading the Diabetic Foot
These sessions will involve interactive debate and hands-on experience, offering delegates the chance to ask questions and take home practical examples for use in their day-to-day work.
There will also be free paper sessions and poster presentations, selected from the wide range of abstracts submitted.
