Annual Meeting of European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel 2017

Belfast, here we come! We’re looking forward to the 19th Annual Meeting of the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) in Northern Ireland, 20-22 September.

Belfast Waterfront building by the sea at night

This year’s conference theme is: one voice for pressure ulcer prevention and treatment challenges and opportunities for practice, research and education.

The 2017 EPUAP Meeting programme will address pressure ulcer (PU) terminology and classification; PU research; patient involvement in PU practice; outcome measures; health economic research; wound monitoring; crossing the hospital-community interface; and more.

Did you know we’re a EPUAP partner? It’s an important relationship for Mölnlycke. We see the sharing of knowledge as one of our most effective means of reducing unnecessary patient suffering.

We’re looking forward to meeting you and sharing experiences in Belfast!

Don’t miss the Mölnlycke symposia and workshops.
