eBlast - January 2017

Early though it is, 2017 is already proving to be filled with great opportunities for Wounds Australia members. Australia, through the support of Wounds Australia, is hosting the Inaugural International Wound Practice and Research Conference in September, and the call for abstracts currently open. The second round of the Wounds Australia Grants and Scholarship Program for this financial year is also currently open, but the deadline is approaching quickly. See below to learn more about these opportunities.

IWPRC 2017 – Call for Abstracts Extended to 28 February 2017

The Inaugural International Wound Practice and Research Conference will be held in Brisbane in September 2017. The call for abstracts is now open and has been extended to 28 February 2017. For submission details or to submit an abstract visit the IWPRC 2017 website.

This conference launches the International Wound Practice and Research Alliance that will bring together like minded wound care associations within the region to share resources, exchange experiences and form political alliances. An important goal will be to foster national associations in countries in our region who may have greater challenges such as often lack resources but are not short on the passion to improve outcomes for those with wounds. Early-bird registrations are now open.
