Hands-on Workshops at Wounds Canada Fall Conference London
Hands-on workshops are small group settings where attendees will have a chance to interact closely with faculty and materials related to each workshops subject matter. These workshops will take place on Thursday, November 8th, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m at the London Convention Centre.
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.
Using Social Media to Strenghen Your Brand
We live in a very social interconnected world. Words matter, with Twitter becoming the quill of our time. Social media brings new conversations about wounds with more health-care professionals or patients.
Conducting Wound Care Research
The field of wound care and wound healing are relatively new and high-quality research to inform practice is often lacking. Research provides both a creative and systematic way to obtain new knowledge that in turn can inform clinical care to improve patient outcomes. This 2.5-hour workshop made up of short lectures, and interactive exercises is intended for health-care providers interested in learning more about research methods in the field of wound care to improve skills both as a consumer and a researcher. No prior research experience is necessary.
Ostomy Care 101
Come and join your colleagues in learning the latest techniques for establishing a secure ostomy seal for your patient! Attendees of this Ostomy workshop will receive an overview of the pathophysiology specific to the different types of ostomies. Additionally, they will have a hands-on opportunity to work with various pouching systems and also accessory products. The workshop will include actual video footage of people with an ostomy and optimum care practices.
Attendees may pick one workshop.
