Description

Every Moment Matters: Implementing Best Practice for VLU Management

L&R in partnership with Huntleigh invite you to join us for an exciting opportunity for a closer look at the Best Practice Statement: Holistic Management of Venous Leg Ulceration, in which we aim to provide a clear treatment pathway to promote consistent best practice. This study day will aim to challenge myths that underpin ritualistic practice in Venous Leg Ulcer management and present real-world solutions that are achievable in the current NHS climate.

This study day will contain workshops tailored to your needs in VLU management from the holistic assessment of your patients, practical workshops on Doppler assessment and measuring and fitting hosiery kits.

This invitation is open to all healthcare professionals and by attending this study day you will earn 'participatory' CPD hours towards your revalidation.

This event is free to attend, lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
