EWMA presentation at EU ‘Week for life’ event

On 26 March 2012 EWMA was invited by a Member of the EU Parliament, Mr Vittorio Prodi, to present in a seminar during the ‘week for life’ event under the theme: Europe against Cancer – the spirit of care. The invitation was based on the strong profile of EWMA within multidisciplinarity and organisation of treatment.

EWMA President, Jan Apelqvist, described the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to wound management and applied this approach to any kind of treatment. The EWMA presentation also related wound management to the organisation of palliative care for cancer patients, stressing that the multidisciplinary approach is essential with regards to the quality of life of the patient as well as efficiency within the health care system.

The primary message of EWMA was the importance of removing barriers for collaboration between different specialists and groups of staff. Failure to remove these  barriers is likely to cause an expensive treatment of poor quality.

MEP Prodi expressed his gratitude for the presence of EWMA at the meeting and confirmed his great interest in wound management.
