My session at 6:00 PM is entitled SKIN FAILURE: The Case for a Unified Classification System. My presentation will accomplish the following objectives:

    • Review the concept of skin failure in its historical context
    • Review factors in today’s health care system that compel us to adopt the concept of skin failure
    • Review how terminal ulcer terminology and unavoidable pressure injuries fit into this concept
    • Suggest a path for the future

Distinguished co-speakers include Mary Brennan, Karen Lou Kennedy-Evans, and Diane Krasner.  I owe a big THANK YOU to WoundSource® for inviting me to present on this important topic!

Over 2000 attendees are already signed up.  Join me online April 2nd between 9AM-7PM for over 30 speakers and 12+ Sessions offering free CME/CEUs. Attend live or jump in when you can and watch on-demand replays all day. Learn more and register here: www.woundcon.com.
