Wounds Canada is pleased to announce the first program in our new Symposium Series: New Perspectives in Diabetic Limb Preservation. Each session in this one-day event will feature a panel of experts who will discuss important topics in the management of patients with diabetic foot ulcers—covering both national and global trends—with a particular focus on the reduction of amputations.
This event is aimed at health-care providers from a number of disciplines with an interest in this topic and/or who are working with patients with lower limb complications that can lead to amputation, including all types of primary care professionals and specialists such as surgeons, family physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, chiropodists and surgical podiatrists. This event will also be of interest to health-care policymakers.
As a delegate of the symposium, you will have the opportunity to meet with key opinion leaders from across Canada and listen to presentations from national and international experts in the field.
This event is the first of its kind and is a joint venture between Wounds Canada and the Canadian Podiatric Medical Association and is supported by the Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Toronto.
This event has also been officially endorsed by the Canadian Society for Vascular Surgery.
