8th Middle East Wound Care Conference

24 - 25 October 2017

Wound healing is also a complex and dynamic process with the wound environment changing with the changing health status of the individual. The knowledge of the physiology of the normal wound healing trajectory through the phases of hemostasis, inflammation, granulation and maturation provides a framework for an understanding of the basic principles of wound healing.

Through this understanding the healthcare professional can develop the skills required to evidence-based, clinically relevant and practical information in the areas of skin health and the prevention and management of wounds support them who work with patients with wounds or who are at risk for developing wounds.

Today, the world of modern wound therapy is an exciting area of study that continues to improve as the understanding of how the body heals itself evolves. Wound care professionals have gone well beyond simple bandages and now use advanced types of wound therapy treatments that are as innovative as they are effective.

The 8th Middle East Wound Care will highlight wound management for general, vascular and reconstructive surgeons and post-operative surgical wound care for wound specialists to decrease risk of infection and place patients on proper antibiotics, minimise trauma, pain and hospitalisation.  In addition there will be hands-on training on negative-pressure wound therapy and a workshop on suturing techniques.

"It gives me great pleasure to welcome all the delegates to the Wound Care conference as part of the patient safety week. Wound healing is a crucial part of body’s ability to maintain itself, yet we realize its importance only when it does not happen. Detailed understanding of wound healing is somehow missing from many curricula and there is a certain gap in knowledge. The scientific content of this conference has been put together to address this need.

The program will focus on basic science of wound healing, the problem of diabetic and chronic wounds and will go into practical details of basic & advanced wound care techniques.

It is likely to be of use to all surgical staff, emergency physicians, diabetologists, general practitioners and care-givers in ICU/long-term facilities.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “The most important lesson for healthcare is not to be satisfied with modest improvements. Aiming for zero harm is the first step toward achieving it. In order to get to zero, healthcare organisations must first commit to the process of becoming a ‘high reliability’ institution. Patient Safety Middle East will focus on the pressing need for healthcare organisations to commit to zero hospital-acquired infections and how to embark on this journey.”
