Sharing best practice and changes in funding nurse students

The summer is nearly over and we are now looking forward to the autumn/winter wound care meetings and conferences. This will be a busy time in the wound care calendar with the Leg Club’s annual meeting in Worcester and the World Union of Wound Healing Societies 4-yearly meeting in Florence both taking place in September, and the Wounds UK conference in Harrogate in November. It can be difficult for some practitioners to secure time away from busy clinical areas, however, these meetings provide an excellent platform for nurses, podiatrists and other healthcare professionals involved in wound care/tissue viability/leg ulcer management to update skills and knowledge, learn about new innovations, and to network with national and international colleagues. Attendance at these meetings can be used as evidence for quality improvement activities for revalidation and, more importantly, help to ensure that knowledge of care interventions is up to date and based on research and evidence, all of which will ultimately benefit the end users — patients and their families.
