The Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC) is dedicated to providing forums that challenge the status quo, promote new ideas for practice and research, and, most importantly, share information that immediately enhances the care we provide to the patients who so desperately need our expertise. For wound care to advance as a specialty, our educational programs must not focus on novices and consist of redundant sanitized content; it requires open debate and critical evidence-based analysis. To achieve this, the AAWC is hosting a series of regional, single-topic meetings that are designed to bring high-level content at an affordable cost closer to our members who may not have the ability to attend a national meeting.
