2009 Continuing Education Information

Needs Assessment
A multidisciplinary panel of experts planned the Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin and Wound Care with an intention to provide a broad and realistic approach to skin care and wound management. Having reviewed the evaluations for the 23rd Annual Symposium and current literature, the panel developed a curriculum based on the theme, "The Conference for Prevention and Healing." Recognizing that both clinicians and researchers are challenged by a need to sort through the fast growing body of information and research, the faculty will evaluate wound assessment methods and treatment modalities that will provide the best patient outcomes. The faculty will also provide hands-on demonstrations of current treatments and discuss the future of wound care.

Target Audience: Multidisciplinary practitioners—physicians, nurses, podiatrists, physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, and others who manage skin and wound care patients across the continuum of health care.

Educational Objectives
At the end of the Symposium, the attendee should be better able to:

  • Apply basic to advanced concepts in the science of wound healing to your practice or role in preventing and managing wounds.
  • Discuss current clinical practice, plus how to integrate cutting-edge treatments, emerging technologies, and research breakthroughs.
  • Identify credible, balanced, and relevant clinical practice issues.
  • Network with faculty and colleagues to maintain and grow relationships.
