The annual conference of the Canadian Association of Wound Care, Wounds Across the Continuum of Care: Access, Innovations and Integration, is a four-day continuing education event designed to support health-care professionals who work with patients with wounds or at risk for developing wounds. This year it will be held in Niagara Falls, Ontario, at the Fallsview Resort and Hilton Niagara Fallsview Hotel, November 3 – through 6, 2016.
This year, for the first time, we have a day sessions are organized into learning streams that cover patients’ main points of access to the health-care system. These include: home and community care, primary care, long-term care and acute care. In addition to these blocks, we have included a “You Asked for It” stream, which features presentations on topics based on attendee feedback from prior conferences.

CAWC Boot Camp: One Week of Intensive Learning
For those who are new to wound care, we recommend an intensive and varied learning experience—all under one roof during the week of conference. Kick off the week by attending our two-day case-based basic course called “Changing Practice through Applied Knowledge.” Stay for the next four days and soak in the knowledge, networking and inspiration of conference. At the end of the week you’ll be exhausted, excited and ready to tackle the world of skin and wound management.
Discounts are available to participants attending both the two-day case-based course and the full conference.
