Please note - you must be registered to attend the Wounds Canada Fall Conference in London in order to register for a hands-on workshop.

The four hands-on workshops being held this year are:

Developing a Business Case for an Integrated Wound Care Team  

Wound care requires the participation of team members who can best provide expertise and resources to achieve effective, timely results for quality patient care, no matter what the setting. Patient outcomes improve when integrated team members participate in care, across all types of healthcare situations. It is clear that the future is for wound care teams rather than individual practitioners trying to manage the complexity of wound care on their own. This hands-on workshop provides participants with the opportunity to develop the business case for their own setting, to support the successful establishment of an integrated wound team. Workshop facilitators will discuss a framework for the business case as well as examples from a variety of clinical settings across Canada.
