Advancing Quality Outcomes Through Wound and Incontinence EducationRegardless of the post-acute care setting (long-term acute care, skilled nursing, home, or hospice), finding the optimal pathway to managing and treating wound and incontinence issues for patients/residents has become ever more challenging. The Post-Acute Care Symposium is designed exclusively to provide nurses the tools they need to meet todays day-to-day challenges with a curriculum that focuses on the strategies necessary for implementing clinical practice guidelines, protocols, and care pathways for wound and incontinence interventions.

The development team for the Post-Acute Care Symposium are wound and incontinence care experts with multiple years of experience providing practical and clinically relevant education for caregivers within LTAC, Long Term Care, Home Care and Hospice settings.

What makes this 2-day event even more unique is the benefit of being co-located with the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Spring meeting, offering attendees the opportunity to access the worlds largest wound care exhibit hall, industry-supported meal sessions, and receptionsall included with their Post-Acute Care Symposium registration.

Take advantage of all of the opportunities that the Post-Acute Care Symposium has to offer that no other meeting can.
