SoTV and EWMA are proud to make a difference – a celebration of healthcare workers in wound care

Let your video and photos tell the story of why you are #ProudToMakeADifference in wound care

The Society of Tissue Viability and EWMA believe in the power of storytelling and want to shine a light on the incredible work that is done by countless professionals, like yourself, every day.

Sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words.
