In 2018, the EWMA conference will be held in Poland for the first time, taking place in the historical city of Krakow. With its lengthy intellectual heritage and modern dynamic development, Krakow offers the ideal venue for EWMA 2018 to gather the European and international wound management communities with the common goal of improving the care of wound patients.
Wound care technologies are rapidly developing new treatment options that should be used when proved cost-effective and beneficial to patients. This practice of continuous development stresses the importance of up-to-date and continued education in an interdisciplinary environment. This means the technological and educational aspects of the field are two highly important elements of seeking and expanding new frontiers in wound management.
The theme of the 28th EWMA conference is 'Krakow: new frontiers in wound management'. The event will focus on the importance of improved and continued education for physicians, nurses, physical therapists and other healthcare professionals engaged in wound management.
EWMA 2018 includes a mixture of new topics important to the European wound community and topics that have had enormous appeal during previous EWMA conferences. The sessions will deal with the advancement of education and research in relation to epidemiology, pathology, diagnosis, prevention and the management of wounds.
