"I had no idea what to expect, but a friendly welcome awaited me. Members can chat together, share experiences and encourage each other. For some it is their one outing of the week. My legs are not in need of treatment at the moment, but I still visit the Club for a cup of tea and a chat with new friends."

WUWHS 2020 will offer an extensive scientific program including numerous symposia, training sessions, workshops and focus sessions with leading international experts in the field of wound management.  The WUWHS 2020 will be an important moment of cultural unity, an essential scientific round-table and professional exchange for wound care specialists from around the world.

In addition, it serves as guide to develop and implement projects to strengthen the central role of the WUWHS which needs to become more of a worldwide scientific point of reference and a standard for innovation and translational research into the management of skin wounds together with the improvement of the quality of life of afflicted patients and their families.

The 6th World Congress to be held in Abu Dhabi is from the 8th to the 12th of March 2020. The conference venue is the award winning Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) which provides ample and flexible space for the Congress of the World Union of Wound Healing Societies.

Diabetic Foot Europe 2020

02 - 03 Apr 2020

The 2nd European Conference on Controversies in Diabetic Foot Management

Berlin, Germany




DiabeticFoot-Europe follows the success of the inaugural 2019 Conference which took place in Vienna and will continue to provide a first-of-its-kind platform for multidisciplinary top-tier scientific and clinical discussions regarding the management and salvage of the diabetic foot, and will address technological innovation, debates and controversies in the field.

Diabetic Foot is one of the most serious complications of Diabetes – which is of an epidemic scale in both developed and developing countries. Ulceration of the feet would severely aggravate the overall health status and patient condition and will likely have socioeconomic impact as well, particularly if eventually leading to foot or limb amputation. Clearly, managing the diabetic foot is a multidisciplinary effort by experts such as podiatrists, orthopedists, vascular and plastic surgeons, dermatologists, neurologists, endocrinologists, diabetes specialists, biomechanists, rehabilitation physicians, physical therapists, nutritionists, nurses, footwear and orthotic consultants and industry research & development leaders. Biomedical research in gait and motion science, tissue mechanics, microbiology, sensor technology, image processing and big data is fundamental to clinical practice.
