“I was one of the three nurses who was lucky enough to be selected by the TVS” says Helen Beard, TVS sponsored place winner!”

Helen Beard was one of the TVS sponsored place winners to attend the 5th Conference of WUWHS 2016 in Florence.  Here’s what she said about the experience…

“I was one of the three nurses who was lucky enough to be selected by the Tissue Viability Society (TVS) to attend the 5th Conference of WUWHS 2016 in Florence. The opening ceremony was launched in style in the historic Renaissance Hall with the introduction of the new president Professor Marco Romanelli among other distinguish guest speakers, a choir from the University of Pisa performed Donizetti and Gershwin followed by a traditional flag throwing march and the evening ended with an ‘aperitivo’ in the courtyard outside where people mingled and enjoyed the cool evening air.

The theme of the Conference was One vision, One Mission and the offering of vast learning opportunities including symposia, courses, workshops, focus sessions, and more than 100 exhibitors offering a great chance to discover the most up-to-date solutions in wound care. There were 374 speakers and guests, 28 Rising Stars in Wound Care, 1893 Physicians, 2087 nurses, co-medicals, postgraduates and PhDs registered to attend the event”.
