DFSG Virtual, 24-25 September 2021
With its decision to hold the 17th annual 2021 DFSG conference fully online, The Diabetic Foot Study Group (DFSG) continues its important work and convenes experts and professionals dedicated to the study, prevention, and care of diabetic foot conditions. This year, Mölnlycke will be right there (online!), participating in the virtual event and hosting an educational symposium.
For two days, 250-300 attendees, the majority of whom are physicians representing most diabetes-focused centres of excellence in Europe, will come together virtually to take part in a full agenda, which includes key note lectures, symposia, and abstract sessions, and will be able to browse e-posters.
Mölnlycke at DFSG: Symposium, Friday, September 24, 13:45 CET
Continuing our commitment to education and supporting patient care, we will present a symposium on September 24 all about providing diabetic foot ulcer care with a focus on the additional challenges brought about by COVID-29:
- Title: Diabetic foot ulcers (DFU): Providing cost-efficient, patient-focused care during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond
- Date/time: September 24, 13:45 CET (35-minute symposium, followed by a 20-minute talk and Q&A)
- Themes: The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its impact will continue for some time. In the meantime, what happens to the patients who require ongoing wound care? This symposium discusses the development of policies and strategies to drive quality of care for the DFU in extraordinary circumstances.
- Speakers: David Armstrong, discussing COVID-19-related challenges to delivering DFU care
