Scientific programme

We look forward to welcoming you to EWMA 2023 and to present a wide variety of sessions on topics important to the wound community.

 


Conference theme: Wound Care - from art to science

Leonardo da Vinci with his genius created not only art, but also used science to understand, describe and develop the world around him.

There was a time when wound care was more an art than a science, but thanks to contributions from many disciplines, wound healing is now solidly based on science and evidence.

Our patients are dependent on a holistic view – not only to their specific wound – but of the patient itself. This requires skills and knowledge from many fields: medicine, engineering, physiology, psychology and patient care.

Multidisciplinary approaches are key to improvement and innovation. That is the focus of the EWMA 2023 conference.

Milano – a hub of art and science for over 500 years – is the backdrop for EWMA’s 2023 conference. A lively city, where scientific advances have shaped progress in industry and design, and attracted the brightest minds for centuries.


Key sessions

The programme features a mixture of new topics which are important to the European wound community in addition to topics that have been popular during previous EWMA conferences. The sessions deal with advancement of education and research in relation to epidemiology, pathology, diagnosis, prevention and management of wounds. 

 

Streams

The full-day streams are particularly popular among EWMA conference delegates, as they foster more in-depth discussions. 

 

Workshops

The workshops are typically held in a smaller setting than key sessions, focus sessions and free paper sessions. EWMA workshops are interactive and give participants an opportunity to address and elaborate on particular aspects of the themes of the individual sessions.

 

Focus sessions

A focus session is an opportunity to go into depth with a topic. The focus sessions take place in a smaller setting and typically have 1-2 speakers.

 

Guest sessions

A number of organisations are invited to organise a guest session. This serves to increase scientific cooperation and networking with organisations active in thematic issues related to wound healing and management.
