Call for Poster and Oral Abstracts

We are currently soliciting poster and oral (15 minute) abstracts for the 28th annual Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care, October 24-27, 2013, at Disney's Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida. The symposium is an educational meeting and exposition for a multidisciplinary team of wound care clinicians across the continuum of care. Poster submissions should contain subject matter of interest to wound care clinicians, including nurses, physicians, podiatrists, physical therapists, dietitians, or research scientists involved in preventing wounds and/or caring for patients with wounds. Topics can include, but are not limited to, clinical research, case studies, treatment modalities, wound classification, laboratory research, treatment protocols, education, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and team building.


The due date for poster submissions is August 16, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be by September 16, 2013.


In addition to poster displays, a poster networking session will be held. Vendor exhibits, keynote speakers, special presentations, an awards ceremony, and more will give conference-goers a full and interesting schedule. And let's not forget Disney's Contemporary Resort is the closest hotel to Magic Kingdom theme park. You can also board the monorail on the hotel's fourth floor to easily navigate to Magic Kingdom theme park and Epcot theme park.
