MolecuLight proudly exhibited for the first time at the 2016 WOCN Society & CAET Joint Conference in Montreal, Quebec.
The event was organized by The Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses SocietyTM (WOCN®) - recognized worldwide for the promotion of safe and effective wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) care - and The Canadian Association for Enterostomal Therapy (CAET) - a not-for-profit association specializing in the nursing care of patients with challenges in wound, ostomy and continence.
The Conference took place at Palais des Congrès de Montréal on June 4-8 2016 and had over 1200 attendees and 140 Exhibitors.
The Conference goals were:
- Create awareness of the socioeconomic and global issues influencing the patient, family and care provider(s) across the healthcare continuum.
- Empower the leadership role of the WOC/ET nurse through education, advocacy, research, marketing and legislation.
- Provide research and evidence-based knowledge of the latest techniques, applications, technologies and treatments related to wound, ostomy and continence issues.
- Promote networking with colleagues to establish a more integrated community of health care providers caring for patients with wound, ostomy and continence issues.
There were a total of 102 sessions that highlighted the importance of reaching beyond the constraints of day-to-day clinical practice to achieve optimal outcomes for patients. Speakers presented groundbreaking and impactful research relevant across the continuum of care.
MolecuLight was delighted to see a breakfast presentation titled Managing Exudate, Infection and Biofilm - Mission Possible presented by Philip Bowler, MPhil, BSc, FIBMS, Stephen Landis, MD, FRCP(C) and Kevin Woo, PhD, RN, FAPWCA. The topic on Wound Infection at the bedside: Dressing and Debridement was discussed in detail.
What a great event!
