                                                Conference Overview
         The incidence of chronic wounds in the United States is approximately 5 to 7 million per year, and the annual
costs for management of these wounds is greater than $20 billion. Research indicates that older adults are more prone
to wound development and decreased healing efficiency. As baby boomers age, the United States General Accounting
Office estimates that the Medicare population will comprise 20% of the national population by year 2030, with people
age 85 and older as the fastest growing age group.
         Sound wound care management has become one of the most crucial issues facing the American health care
system because of the exorbitant costs involved and the surge in the geriatric population. If one includes the problems
of venous stasis and diabetic foot ulcers, the magnitude of the costs soars. The move to managed care, further
restrictions in health care costs, increasing litigation, and governmental regulations will require that health care
providers are knowledgeable about wound care and pressure ulcer prevention and able to intervene appropriately.
         Although, wound care has progressed rapidly during the last 20 years, if clinicians are to keep current with the
increased incidence of chronic wounds they must be updated on the sophisticated therapies currently available, as well
as those currently under development. This conference is designed to give physicians, registered nurses and other allied
health care professionals a comprehensive overview of a variety of pertinent topics in wound healing.

                                                   Target Audience
Target Audience
This conference is geared for physicians specializing in family practice, general practice, internal medicine, orthopaedics,
