PLEASE NOTE 

If the session requires a different set up than theatre, meeting room Collone will be used.

EPUAP Gold Sponsors have 10% discount on the above rates.

Industry session speakers

All speakers must be registered for the conference. Registration, accommodation, and travelling costs must be covered by the company for any invited speaker or chair person.


Fixed Fee

If the speaker is also an invited speaker at the EPUAP scientific programme or a EPUAP Executive Board Member / EPUAP Trustee, the company must pay a fixed fee to EPUAP. The fixed fee covers the speaker’s hotel room for 3 nights, the registration fee, and travel expenses.

The fee is €1,400 for speakers from outside Italy and €1,100 for speakers from Italy. If there are more companies inviting the same speaker, the costs will be split evenly between all of them. Companies will be invoiced the fixed fee just before or just after the conference.

EPUAP holds the right to invite speakers until the time of conference and can therefore not provide a full list of speakers during the planning of the event.

Supported by strong evidence, these innovations are designed to address the heart of the problem, protecting against the four extrinsic factors responsible for PU formation. Mölnlycke invites you to join its symposium to listen to key thought leaders in the field of PU prevention discuss the science behind these innovations, the evidence that demonstrates their effectiveness in protecting patients and saving costs. What are the critical success factors that make a prevention programme effective? Can these be consistently implemented in your facility? The expert panel will share with you some of the critical success factors they have experienced when implementing such programmes in the facilities where they work.

LINET WORKSHOP

When: 10:00 - 11:00

Where: Colonne Hall

Theme: "If I know then what I know now"

Speaker:

  • Lorraine Demott 

Brief description:

Healthcare professionals are expected to keep and update regularly a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) portfolio of which a reflective practice section is required. Reflective practice is a way of studying your own experiences to improve the way you work. It is very useful for healthcare professionals who want to carry on learning throughout their lives. The act of reflection is a great way to increase confidence and become a more proactive and qualified professional.

This presentation is a personal reflection of a period of time in the presenter’s life and questions whether the relationship between healthcare specialists could be improved. It asks whether healthcare specialists have become so specialised that they may have forgotten some of the basic knowledge they learnt many years previously.

The presentation focuses on pressure ulcer prevention, moving and handling techniques and the choice of appropriate equipment.

Brief description:

Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD) represents a significant global health concern affecting up to 41% of nursing home residents and 35% of all patients in acute care settings. 3M has launched a novel technology to improve the treatment and prevention of IAD. From the moment this novel technology was launched clinical experts in the field of skin and wound care have tried and experienced the value that this can bring for their patients suffering from IAD or being at risk of IAD.  Immediately after their first experiences, they recognized that this novel solution is not limited to IAD alone but also a valuable solution for other MASD lesions (Moisture Associated Skin Damage) and even partial thickness lesions of various causes.  We would like to welcome you during our lunch session to come and listen to various clinical experts how they dealt with challenging cases and resolved it simply with Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant.
