Registration is underway for the 27th Annual Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care, which will be held October 20 to 23, 2012, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will meet the continuing-education needs of multidisciplinary skin and wound care practitioners, from novice to expert, by providing a forum for educational sessions and interactive workshops that offer comprehensive wound management strategies. We are expecting 1000 multidisciplinary practitioners to attend the symposium, including nurses, physicians, podiatrists, physical therapists, dietitians, and others who manage skin and wound care patients across the continuum of healthcare. We'll offer CE credit for nurses, CME credit for physicians, CPME credit for podiatrists, CEUs for physical therapists, and CPEUs for registered dietitians and dietetic technicians.


In addition, the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine (ACHM) will hold its 2012 Annual Meeting in conjunction with the symposium. The ACHM will add a dedicated hyperbaric program, as well as host its annual membership meeting.


And don't forget, the submission deadline for poster and oral abstracts for consideration and review is August 15, 2012. Complete details on submitting abstracts and symposium registration are available at
