Event description

An education evening exploring the complexities and challenges of maintaining and protecting the skin integrity of our older patients. A minor traumatic injury in an older adult can potentially become a major long-term wound requiring complex care and multiple resources, causing frustration, pain and reliance on medical and nursing services.

Whether you are a beginner or veteran, you will find this evening relevant, interesting and informative.
