For two full days of live lectures, panel discussion and limb salvage cases; this year's program brings together the most renowned lower limb specialists to discuss the latest education and outcomes needed to heal wounds and prevent amputations.
The increasing incidence of diabetic foot ulcers and wounds creates challenges for practitioners regarding strategies to treat this complex comorbidity; however, not all practitioners are able to stay abreast of the most recent advances and techniques resulting in practice gaps among some patients.
This activity will provide an in-depth review of limb revascularization and wound care for patients with diabetes and update health care practitioners regarding the current understanding of the biologic basis of vascularization in diabetes, assessment and classification of wounds, and current therapies. Through a knowledgeable approach to treating this patient population, practitioners will be able to incorporate the latest research and clinical trial findings into their practice.
Internists, vascular surgeons, surgeons, interventional cardiologists, podiatrists, wound and acute care specialists, physician assistants, hospital and skilled nursing staff, and administrators of wound care centers will gain knowledge from attending this activity.
