EWMA Conference 2018

EWMA Journal, October 2017, Vol 18 (2)

In this issue, you can read about the EWMA 2018 conference, in addition to four scientific papers. One paper from Australia illustrates an innovative redesign and tailoring of moisture products to meet clinical and women’s needs within a maternity environment through collaboration between industry and clinicians. Another paper outlines how healthcare practitioners can advance their practice. The third paper is from our colleagues from the United States and highlights the impact of the changing healthcare climate on wound care.

The final paper presents a meeting report of the ‘Core Outcome Set for Venous Leg Ulceration (CoreVen)’ project. This report describes the project’s introduction, rationale, purpose and progress to date and seeks to gain feedback on the proposed project methodology.

In this issue, you will also find a chapter by EWMA on negative pressure wound therapy (‘Future Perspectives’) and an article about the SWANiCARE project.

Finally, you will find an article by one of the EWMA cooperating organisations, the Swiss Wound Care Association (German section), focusing on the recognition of wound care centres, in addition to news from other collaborating partner organisations of EWMA.


EWMA Journal

The EWMA Journal is the official journal of EWMA and is published twice a year, in May and October.

The EWMA journal is primarily designed to be a membership journal, with a specific focus on promoting EWMA's activities and sharing wound relevant news, scientific knowledge and clinical experience between EWMA target groups.

At the same time this meets another EWMA objective of facilitating the spread of knowledge on wound care and educating new generations of wound care professionals. EWMA Journal is CINAHL indexed and provides peer-reviewed original scientific articles, reviews, clinical information and  information about developments in wound management across Europe.

It is distributed free of charge to EWMA members and to members of national wound healing organisations in Europe, as well as to a wider audience via the internet.
