TVS Scholarship Winner had a great conference!

Faith Wilson was one of the lucky winners of a scholarship to TVS 2014 – The Conference. Here is her report about the conference:

‘I was delighted to be awarded one of the undergraduate scholarships to attend the Tissue Viability Conference 2014 in York. I felt it was going to be a great opportunity not only to find out lots about tissue viability, but to also meet other like minded people and develop contacts.

The talks were very informative and it was really interesting to talk to companies about different products they offered for various wounds, pressure ulcer treatments and different cleaning products to use in the clinical settings.

The 2 days widened my knowledge of tissue viability, which will be helpful not only in finalising my dissertation, but also for my future career. I intend to share what I learnt with my friends to increase their awareness of skin integrity and pressure ulcer prevention.

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting nurses from different parts of the country and discussing different treatments they use in their area to treat and prevent pressure ulcers.

Thank you for the opportunity to attend such a great event and I thoroughly look forward to attending the Tissue Viability Society conference next year.’
