Welcome to the Wound Care Alliance web site. The WCAUK is a charity with a group of committed trustees with the remit of supporting the delivery of well-informed high quality care by clinicians well versed in the principles of best practices in all aspects of Tissue Viability.
We are very pleased to be working in conjunction with Mark Allen Healthcare and this week many of you will have received your latest copy of the British Journal of Nursing Tissue Viability supplement published in conjunction with the Wound Care Alliance UK. As you will have noticed there is a new look and WCAUK trustees have joined the editorial board, so if you have suggestions or requests we are always happy to receive your feedback.
It was also a great pleasure to present the pressure care nurse of the year award at the annual BJN awards and both Professor Louise Toner and I were very proud of the contributions to nursing care on the night.
As always the WCAUK will have a clinical skills conference and our annual conference. If you have not already booked a place at our forthcoming clinical skills conference then please see the flier with all the details. It promises to be an informative event and the opportunity to improve your clinical skills including key aspects of tissue viability such as pressure ulcer prevention, wound assessment and management, skin assessment and care and bandaging and compression hosiery.
The annual conference will be on 5th October 2016 in Plymouth.
You will also be able to collect you copies of the WCAUK posters including skin care and skin tears, pressure ulcers, hosiery and wound assessment. If you prefer you may of course download these form the website if you are a member. So, if you are thinking of joining remember you can sign up on line.
Finally, I would like to thank our commercial sponsors and their links can be found under the sponsors tab.
I look forward to seeing you all at the educational events.
