AAWC Podium to Practice Track

Each Spring during SAWC, The AAWC provides our own evidence-based, patient-centered, multidisciplinary clinical track. Best practice pearls and tips are delivered that can be implemented as early as your first day back to work. This track will cover not only what to do to advance wound care as a professional practice and career, but also will empower the learner with the knowledge about how to do it. Be sure to take advantage of these educational sessions.

Need help to convince your facility’s decision makers that you must attend SAWC? We want to help you take charge! Here’s a sample letter to get you started.


 The AAWC is a supporting society of WUWHS 2020. The theme, "Global Healing. Changing Lives," was developed in a unique manner that serves for both WUWHS 2020 congress and to solidify the entire wound care enthusiast to share their practice to build new trends and enhance clinical practice. One of the precise objectives of WUWHS 2020 is to promote a greater collaboration and cooperation of all the scientific wound care societies around the world who have passion in caring for wounds as their main mission. In addition, it serves as a 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.
