Why attend?

Wound Expo provides an interactive learning experience focused specifically on the needs of all professionals involved in tissue viability and wound care.

Wound Expo will enable you to learn in an intimate classroom environment, interacting with a small group of peers and colleagues. It will be unlike other large conferences which provide a series of lectures in large halls full of many different professionals.

Each 45 minute session will have a maximum of 40 participants, and will be structured to enable discussion and feedback to maximise your learning outcomes.

Each session will be led by a clinical expert in the field. Speakers will present focused information on the latest developments in clinical practice, as well as a selection of patient case studies which will give you the opportunity to talk through the options for care for a particular patient with your peers, and run through the pros and cons with key opinion leaders in each clinical field.

This approach will enable you more easily to ask questions you might have, and discuss your questions fully with colleagues and peers in a non-intimidating environment. It will also give you a chance to participate in hands on demonstrations and group work.

The content will be focused on questions that are important to nursing in wound care so that you will be able to take everything you learn back to your workplace and apply it to your day to day work with patients.

Coupled with a vibrant exhibition, showcasing the latest developments in treatment and support for patients, Wound Expo is the educational event for tissue viability professionals.
