2023 annual conference – solving skin & wound challenges together

We believe that skin health and wound healing is everyone’s business and that change happens when we work together, not in silos.

Come to the SoTV 2023 annual conference – solving skin & wound challenges together and you can join our community and listen to live lectures, interviews and discussions, take part in workshops, visit our industry exhibition, network with colleagues and speakers and join the live conversations during the sessions.

Our conference really is a space where professional connections are made, ideas are shared and collaborative action happens.

 Programme includes:

  • Latest innovative thinking and research from the world of skin health and wound healing
  • Get up to speed on the latest thinking on pressure ulcer prevention and management
  • Lectures and discussions on lower limb management and compression

  • Managing surgical wounds and preventing and treating surgical site infections including the latest research findings
  • The effect of the latest digital technology on skin health and wound healing
  • Innovation and quality improvement
  • Interactive workshops – advanced bandaging skills, vascular assessment and debridement
  • A full day of evidence-based Practice lectures and updates on the NIHR wounds research portfolio
  • Our ‘Fundamentals of wound care’ day, looking at the skin and skin breakdown, wound assessment and healthy legs & feet
  • Scientific symposia sponsored by 3M and Urgo
