Are you a veterinary surgeon or experienced nurse with a passion for wound management? Or are you from the human field and interested to experience what is going on in veterinary wound healing science, or to be inspired from another point of view?? Join the


International Conference of the Veterinary Wound Healing Association (VWHA)

at EWMA 2024, 2-3 May


The theme is:


“From everyday wound care to advanced wound management”



We have created an equine programme in collaboration with BEVA and a small animal programme which is supported by BSAVA. Both the small animal and equine programme will be interesting for any veterinarian as we will present and discuss challenges we all encounter in everyday veterinary practice, such as non-healing wounds, when things go wrong, prudent use of antibiotics during wound treatment and alternatives to reduce bacterial burden. Additionally, we will present about biological and physical methods for wound treatment, as well as complicated and extensive wounds and emergency cases.

Thursday May 2nd: equine programme including the Equine Wound Center session

Friday May 3rd: small animal programme including wound emergency

Join the Veterinary Wound Healing Association to learn about the practical approach to optimise wound treatment. Enjoy the programme with keynote lectures about the latest views, research developments, and discussions.

Call for abstracts!

Similar to other years, we have organised a free communication sessions which will be held spread through the programme. Brand new research about a variety of subjects in the field of veterinary wounds and wound management will be presented.

Are you interested to submit an abstract: please approach: advice@vwha.net

Abstracts (including original studies, case studies and case reports) dealing with all aspects of wound management (diagnosis, treatment, disease mechanisms etc.) in large AND small animals  are invited! Deadline March 31st 2024
