Pan-European exchanges: working together and learning from one another

24/04/17 | Education, Professional Development | Karen Ousey

Welcome to this special issue of Wounds UK, which coincides with this year’s EWMA conference. The focus of the conference is “Change, Opportunities And Challenges — Wound Management In Changing Healthcare Systems”, a hot topic in the UK and extremely relevant to the ongoing changes in our healthcare system. Even the UK media seem set on reporting about missed targets for Emergency Departments, people having to wait weeks to have an appointment with their General Practitioners, long waiting lists for elective operations, and a disconnect between health and social care. I am sure that these concerns are not limited to the UK and it will be interesting to hear how international colleagues are managing these challenges.
