Wound Expo will deliver eight bespoke, therapy specific zones led by expert educators and key opinion leaders. The event is designed to provide high quality learning outcomes for all members of the nursing team. Interactive sessions will take a step-by-step approach to evidence-based management, using case presentations to provide you with practical knowledge to take back to the workplace.

Each session will run for an hour and there will be five sessions a day; allowing you to be educated in treatment pathways, wound assessment, wound infection, leg ulcer management, wound pain and well being, pressure area care, wound exudate and negative pressure wound therapy over the two days in addition to professional networking and a vibrant exhibition.

Effective wound assessment increases the likelihood of a good outcome. The zone describes how to assess the wound, and when to reassess to determine if a change in treatment is required.

Wound infection

Infection is a major cause of wound-related problems. This session will get you thinking about how to identify infection in different wounds, how to distinguish infection from colonisation, and how to deal with each effectively.
