Wounds UK Annual Conference
Wounds UK Annual Conference, Harrogate – Monday 14th – Wednesday 16th November 2016
The biggest Wound Care event of the year, Wounds UK is being held at the Harrogate International Centre. Entitled ‘Making the Case for Change: Embracing guidelines, processes and patient partnership’, this year’s event features sessions on key issues that clinicians face today, as well as an extensive scientific programme and the popular ‘Made Easy’ workshops. The event will also include the full-day diabetic foot masterclass hosted by the Foot in Diabetes UK group (FDUK).
Stand 32, It’s all about the outcome:
Mölnlycke Health Care’s stand focus this year is ‘All about the outcome.’ Split into four key formulary areas, (wound contact layers, foams, gelling fibres and dermatology), we will show how our formulary solutions support better outcomes for patients, clinicians and your health economy.
Additionally, we will have an ‘Artist’s Corner’ on stand, where we will be asking two key questions to delegates: ‘In your role, what gets you up in the morning?’, and ‘In your role, what keeps you awake at night?’
These insights will be captured by our illustrator who will be drawing live on stand, creating a mosaic of different thoughts and feelings and capturing the overall atmosphere of those working with Wound Care. Come and visit us at Stand 32 and learn more about our wound care solutions.
Is your clinical practice safe?
In addition to our exhibition stand, we will be hosting a symposium on Tuesday 15th November, 8:00-8:45am in Hall D entitled ‘Is your clinical practice safe? Addressing patient safety and clinical integrity when using wound contact layers with NPWT’. All Wounds UK delegates are welcome to attend the symposium and registration is not required.
According to a recent survey, more than 50% of UK clinicians didn’t know whether their preferred wound contact layer dressing could be safely used with NPWT1. During the symposium, a new consensus document on the appropriate use of wound contact layer dressings alongside NPWT will be introduced.
The symposium will be presented by Jacqui Fletcher, Independent Consultant, and Joanne McCardle, Diabetes Foot Clinical Research Fellow at NHS Lothian, Edinburgh.
With more than 1,300 delegates set to attend, the event promises to be a must-see part of the 2016 wound care calendar, and we hope to meet you there!
