Conference: Steppingstones to Excellence in Wound Care

This is to announce that the 2012 Steppingstones to Excellence in Wound Care Conference will be held Friday, October 5, 2012 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. A brochure for the Conference will be published in late Spring 2012.

Twenty-five years of extraordinary advances in both acute and chronic wound management have redefined what constitutes “basic knowledge” in the wound management arena. As a result of these changes, it is now possible for healthcare providers at multiple levels to increase their scope-of-practice.

This conference is specifically designed to provide clinical nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapist, and other members of the healthcare team, from any healthcare setting, the opportunity to learn many advances in wound care and discuss the treatment and management of patients with acute and chronic wounds.

Mark your calendar now and plan to be a part of one of the finest wound care conferences offered in our region!

For further information, or to be put on either an email notification list, or on a "snail" mail list for the brochure, you may call us at telephone (804) 828-0418; fax: (804) 828-6479; or email: CeforNursing@mcvh-vcu.edu.
