The University of Salford is hosting the International Wound Conference Management Conference specifically for NHS Professionals. The event will aim to provide delegates with experience in treating wounds in simulated treatment environments and bringing together leading Tissue Viability Specialists to educate delegates on the management and treatment of unique wounds. There is a considerable mental health consideration, as these are some of the most uncertain environments for wound management.
The event is now offering NHS professionals the chance to attend FREE OF CHARGE, as the initial response and funding from the University of Salford has seen an exciting response.
