Business of Wound Care Rationale

About SAWC Fall

Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Fall 2014

For over 25 years, the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) meetings have provided a venue at which the interdisciplinary wound care community can gather and learn, and SAWC has, in the process, become the biggest and best wound care conference in the United States. Our motto — One Vision, Many Faces, One Family — continues to guide us. We are pleased that the successes of four annual SAWC Fall meetings have continued this great tradition as we embark on our fifth annual SAWC Fall. Connected by our involvement with our patients, our healthcare settings, the government agencies that regulate our care, and various overarching organizations, we work toward a common goal: to decrease the number and severity of chronic wounds.

SAWC Fall 2014 will offer up to 40 new clinical sessions and host a major exhibition of products and services for wound care professionals. The SAWC is committed to providing the highest level of clinical education and information to physicians, podiatrists, nurses, physical therapists and allied health professionals dedicated to the advancement of wound care and healing.
