I am thrilled to be presenting on SKIN FAILURE at WoundCon, the first of its kind ONLINE Virtual Wound Care Conference and Expo. Brought to you by the publishers of WoundSource®, this full-day virtual conference on Thursday, April 2, 2020 will include a series of CME/CE sessions focused on skills to improve clinical competency in managing acute and chronic wounds across the health care continuum.
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.
