Let’s face it, not everyone gets excited about wound care. Not everyone can study graphic wound photos while eating lunch with friends. But for those of us who can – for those of us who want to learn and study the healing of wounds – well, we get each other in a way that’s hard to describe.
That’s why attending the Wild on Wound (WOW) 2015 National Conference in Las Vegas, Sept. 2-5, is so valuable. This annual event is dedicated to continuing education for all clinicians interested in healing wounds. You’ll get to hang out with like-minded skin enthusiasts, get your hands dirty, so to speak, and get better at doing that unique thing you do.
And if that’s not enough reason to get yourself to Vegas, then check out our Top Five Reasons why you should go:
Catch a BUZZ. The Buzz Report, a highlight of every WOW conference, features speakers and WCEI co-founders Nancy Morgan and Donna Sardina. You’ll find out what’s hot in wound care, including new products, guidelines, resources and tools. It’s an information-packed session that, just by itself, is worth the trip.
Improve your skills. You’ll impress your friends and amaze even yourself with how elevated your clinical skills will be, thanks to a powerful lineup of interactive and advanced how-to sessions, along with plenty of hands-on workshops. You’ll get to participate in product training with industry experts that will advance your knowledge of wound care technologies. How does Sharp Debridement sound? Or what about Topical Wound Management? Whatever your interest, we’ve got you covered.
Meet your people. Sure, online interaction is great, but nothing – and we mean nothing – beats meeting new friends and talented colleagues face-to-face and in person. WOW provides the kind of networking opportunities that allow you to truly engage with others in a meaningful way. You can learn from fellow professionals and take comfort in knowing that other people get you and understand what you’re all about.
Be the best you can be. You’re good at what you do, no doubt about it. But all of us in health care need to maintain a competitive edge – for your organization, and for your patients. At the WOW conference you’ll be able to do amazing things, like review challenging wound cases through dramatic, interactive mock court trials and case studies. Staying ahead of your competitors is crucial, and learning the latest and greatest in would care treatments and techniques is imperative in our industry.
Have fun. Wound care is serious business. Whether it’s staying abreast of healthcare reform changes or learning about new treatment guidelines, being the best at what we do is paramount. And giving yourself the gift of this conference and everything it offers is a tangible way to revitalize, reenergize and find your wound care mojo. But we also know how important it is to enjoy the company of others and let your hair down, so to speak. The WOW conference affords attendees plenty of time to laugh, meet new people and enjoy each other in an unparalleled way.
Wound Care is ever an ever-changing industry, and it’s not easy to keep up with all the new information that’s out there on your own. Come join us at the WOW conference, revel in the company of other wound care clinicians, and enjoy the inspiration and passion of colleagues and industry leaders. We can’t wait to see you there.
