Smith & Nephew Roadshows 2008 This year’s Smith & Nephew/Wounds UK Wound Care Roadshows proved to be a resounding success. The plan seemed ambitious in the beginning with the aim being to reach as many nurses as possible in a relatively short period of time. The result was 40 events around the UK, with more than 3,500 delegates and 20 top UK speakers all in the space of six weeks. The key message from the events was the need to address all the issues which affect patients who present with wounds. Identifying the patients’ needs and fears were the central themes and the focus was on the issues of infection, pain, odour and psychosocial aspects of having a chronic wound.
