Event description

Description

Salford Professional Development and the University of Salford are bringing the International Wound Conference to the Manchester area again, after a widely successful event last year in London we wanted to bring our leading healthcare event to the North West.

The conference is a one day wound care event for up to 300 healthcare professionals and focuses upon wound care from the mental health perspective. It is unique and different to the usual wound care conferences as this one contains keynote lectures, and also offers delegates the opportunity to attend wound care clinics where life like simulated wounds will be used on real people and manikins to simulate wounds often seen in mental health settings.

Through simulations and keynote lectures delegates will explore the role of those initiating and investigating cases such as these including the role of the: Harm Free Care Panel, exploring Human Factors, Patient Advice and Liaison Service, Solicitors (Patient/Family and Organisation), Union, Professional Regulatory Bodies and Coroner.

Patients or their relatives are equipped with information and support to complain or take legal action for the harm that is caused because of pressure ulceration. Therefore, health and social care practitioners should ensure they are found not guilty of negligence and are attentive of professional, legal and employment sanctions, penalties and financial awards.

The main objectives of the Conference are:

  • To explore the professional, legal and employment issues of those involved with 2 cases where patients have developed pressure ulcers.
  • To develop health and social care professional’s knowledge of the roles of those initiating and investigating cases where pressure ulcers have developed
  • To provide opportunities for an in-depth exchange of experience and expertise within and beyond the wound care community.
