LINK for Wound Healing Congress

18th - 19th September 2017   

Belfast, Northern Ireland

Waterfront Conference Centre


The Journal of Wound Care (JWC) and the Vivano Competence Network are delighted to invite you to the first LINK for Wound Healing Congress, which will take place on the 18th and 19th September 2017 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

This International congress marks a new collaboration between the JWC and HARTMANN. It represents a unique occasion for delegates to engage with Key Opinion Leaders from around the world in the fields of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) and Advanced Wound Healing. The congress also provides an unparalleled opportunity to review the recent documented progress in both these clinical areas.

In order to promote networking and knowledge exchange under the LINK umbrella (Learn, Inform, Network, Knowledge), and following the repeated success of the Vivano Congress, this International event will discuss Vivano NPWT and present the most up-to-date topics in advanced wound healing with Hydro Responsive Wound Dressing. This will be done in two parallel conferences: Negative Pressure Wound Care and Advanced Wound Healing.

All delegates are invited to submit their abstracts for oral and/or poster presentations for either NPWT or HydroTherapy. The board from JWC and the Vivano Competence Network will evaluate the abstracts, bringing together some of the greatest minds in NPWT and Advanced Wound Healing. The best scientific contribution for both Vivano and HydroTherapy will be presented with the LINK Award during the Congress Dinner on the evening of the 18th September. The deadline for submission is 30th March 2017.

We believe this is an exceptional occasion to fully understand the challenges in NPWT and wound healing and discuss the different perspectives from which these could be addressed.

We look forward to seeing you in Belfast!

With warm regards,

JWC, Vivano Competence Network and HydroTherapy experts
