We were delighted to be part of the 2019 EWMA (European Wound Management Association) conference in Gothenburg, Sweden earlier this month. The focus of this year’s event was person-centred wound care, in order to encourage healthcare professionals to always remember that the wound is part of someone's body and a daily challenge for the person who has to live with it. Discussion included ensuring that the patient themselves is part of the team focused on wound healing. This approach – using a multidisciplinary inter-professional team and person-centered wound care – helps support the wound healing process, increasing the patients' quality of life. It is ultimately also more cost effective.
Next year’s EWMA will take place at the London EXCEL from 13th – 15th May in collaboration with the Tissue Viability Society (TVS). TVS is an amazing organisation which exists to provide expertise in wound management, and has been in existence for more than 35 years. We are proud to be a corporate sponsor of the UK’s TVS and always join them at their annual conference.
