It is a pleasure to announce the 24th conference of the European Wound Management Association, EWMA-GNEAUPP 2014. The conference is organised in cooperation with the Spanish Group for the Study and Advice on Pressure Ulcers and Chronic Wounds (GNEAUPP)

The conference theme


reflects both the technological and also the organisational need for high quality services with the limited resources available in wound care. Health care systems throughout Europe must address the challenges of aging populations, more people living with chronic conditions and therefore a growing demand for optimising wound care with the help of innovative procedures and practise.
