Malvern, PA – July 30, 2021 – WoundCon, the first and largest global virtual wound care conference, is proud to announce a new and innovative live event that is free to attend and offers 5.25 CME/CE credits. Biofilm-Based Wound Care is a virtual, hands-on skills workshop that will be presented with closed captioning in eight languages, including Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French, German, Polish and English.

The workshop will take place on Friday, September 24, 2021 from 7:00AM to 3:50PM EDT and will be available on-demand for two weeks after the event.

By developing a live workshop that is both virtual and hands on, WoundCon has created a unique experience that helps attendees learn the theory, watch the skills in action, and then do it themselves.

“Practicing biofilm-based wound care is an evidence-based essential skill,” states Cathy Milne APRN, MSN, ANP/ACNS-BC, CWOCN-AP, one of the two experts guiding attendees through the four essential steps in addressing wound bioburden. “What’s really exciting is that this distinctly skills-oriented experience enables attendees to learn and practice the very same day."

Complementing Ms. Milne’s teachings on wound cleansing and dressing the wound as an antibiofilm strategy, Jayesh Shah MD, MHA, will be leading the skills experience in the debridement and refashioning wound edges sessions.

“This unique workshop is designed for health care professionals at all levels of wound care practice—from novice to expert,” states Dr. Shah. “It is an experience that will help attendees develop hands-on skills in real time and give them an increased confidence in translating evidence-based recommendations to their patients’ bedside.”
