EWMA & Cooperating Organisations 1st Roundtable
In 2015 EWMA launched a new collaborative activity: “National wound care roundtables”. This initiative aims to support the organisation of a number of meetings on national level, focusing on a previous or current EWMA focus topic. These meetings will be arranged in collaboration with the Cooperating Organisations of EWMA that wish to host a “wound care roundtable”.
The 1st Roundtable was organised by the Lithuanian Wound Management Association (LWMA), and chaired by former EWMA Council member Prof. Rytis Rimdeika. This took place in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas on 15 April 2016. The key topic of meeting and debate was organisation of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT).
The EWMA Council was represented by Prof. Sue Bale and Dr. Edward Jude.
An article about this very first roundtable will be published in the EWMA Journal October 2016 issue.
Meanwhile, all Cooperating Organisations are encouraged to express their interest in hosting a roundtable during 2017 and beyond.
