EWMA Conference 2018

CHANGE, OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES - WOUND MANAGEMENT IN CHANGING HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS

Objectives:

The Opening key session will focus on the theme of the conference:

National healthcare systems in Europe are continuously changing, reorganising and adapting to respond to changing demographics and budget restrictions. This sets the context in which wound healing and wound carers must navigate to provide the best possible treatment for the individual patient.
At the same time technology is rapidly developing, providing new methods and means of treatment and organisation.

The 27th EWMA conference will have its focus on the changes, opportunities and challenges provided by these continuous processes for wound management across Europe and beyond.
