The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) is committed to providing the highest level of clinical education and information for physicians, nurses, physical therapists, researchers, podiatrists, and dietitians involved in wound healing or wound care issues.
To be accepted to present an oral or poster abstract during the upcoming SAWC meeting, each proposed presentation must be described in an abstract. These abstracts are blind reviewed by a panel of expert judges. Each abstract will be reviewed based on specific criteria for the category in which it is placed. Therefore, it is very important for the author to specify which category the abstract should be entered.
You may select one of the three presentation types for consideration:
- Poster Presentation Only
- Oral Presentation Only
- Poster Presentation if not selected for Oral
Additionally, you may also select to be considered for:
