Join us for the 30th Anniversary Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care: The Conference for Prevention and Healing on September 18-21, 2015 at the Hyatt REgency New Orleans in New Orleans, LA. The conference is produced by Wolters Kluwer Health/Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, publisher of Advances in Skin & Wound Care.


The conference will meet the continuing-education needs of multidisciplinary skin and wound care practitioners, from novice to expert, by providing a forum for educational sessions and interactive workshops that offer comprehensive wound management strategies.

We’re expecting 800-1,000 multidisciplinary practitioners at this year’s conference—nurses, physicians, podiatrists, physical therapists, dietitians and others who manage skin and wound care patients across the continuum of health care. We’ll offer CE credit for nurses, CME credit for physicians, CPME credit for podiatrists, CEUs for physical therapists, and CPEUs for Registered Dieticians and Dietetic Technicians.


After attending the symposium, you'll be able to:

  • Apply the evolving science of wound healing to prevent and manage wounds.
  • Evaluate current clinical practice and integrate emerging treatments, technologies, and research data into practice.
  • Assess credible and relevant clinical practice issues that impact positive patient outcomes.
  • Network with faculty and colleagues to maintain and grow relationships and improve patient care outcomes.

We also encourage you to share your research findings and wound management tips, tricks, techniques and expertise as a presenter in our poster session. Display details of your clinical innovations and give colleagues information they can take home and apply in their work settings. Poster guidelines can be downloaded from this page (see column on left).
