The Future is Now: Transform Your Practice
The annual conference of the Canadian Association of Wound Care is a four-day continuing education event designed to support health-care professionals who work with patients with wounds or who are at risk for developing wounds. In 2015 it will be held in Toronto, at the Westin Harbour Castle, October 29 through November 1, 2015. Health-care professionals at the forefront of skin and wound research, care and policy-making from across Canada and around the world will be in attendance.
This year’s conference continues the CAWC’s practice of addressing gaps in knowledge and practice as informed by the expressed needs of professionals working in the field of wound care.
Sessions, which are presented by experts in their fields from across Canada and the U.S., take many different forms, from panel discussions to all attendees to single-presenter, smaller forums. A minimum of 25% of each session will be devoted to active learning activities.
The goals of the CAWC conference are:
• To bring together national and international experts in the field of wound prevention and management
• To assist practitioners to incorporate the most recent scientific evidence, technology and tools into practice
• To review and discuss the extent and quality of evidence surrounding the prevention and management of different types of wounds
• To discuss practical, patient-centered, cost-effective approaches to wound care
• To discuss the policy implications of clinical decisions and vice-versa
• To provide an avenue for communication between practitioners and industry
By the end of this conference, participants will be able to:
• Identify barriers and bridges to implementing the latest evidence into their practice
• Identify the most recent technological developments in the area of skin health and wound care
• Select the appropriate treatment for each patient with a wound or at risk of developing a wound
