Innovations In Wound Care Meeting

  • This event has passed.

It is widely agreed that an increase of diabetes and an aging population will lead to more chronic wounds and expose the NHS to a major drain on resources unless more effective care systems can be developed and improved treatments introduced. Wound care is recognised as an area of unmet need and in order to more effectively target resources the NIHR has established a Health Technology Cooperative in Wound Prevention and Treatment to focus attention on the development and delivery of novel wound care medical devices. The Technology in Medicine Section aims to highlight areas of need and showcase some of the work being undertaken to improve patient outcomes across acute and chronic wound care.
