About the Conference
As the population of Qatar grows, so does the demand on the country’s healthcare systems. As a result, healthcare in Qatar is transforming, with new buildings, equipment, procedures, recruitment and training being developed, all in line with the Qatar National Vision of 2030.
With the population growth, Qatar has seen an increase in the number of road traffic accidents and construction site injuries. To help respond to this, Hamad General Hospital, part of Hamad Medical Corporation, introduced a specialist multi-disciplinary, inpatient and outpatient Wound Care Unit.
Providing such high quality wound care requires that healthcare workers work effectively with their colleagues across other disciplines. This is often referred to as inter-professional collaboration (IPC). There is evidence to support that employing a multidisciplinary team strategy in healthcare can lead to improved outcomes for patients.
This three day conference aims to support the continuing education in evidence based practice to provide comprehensive information about the various aspects of clinical and practical care for patients. The conference will also share the most modern scientific applications in the treatment of wounds resulting from chronic diseases such as diabetes and look at ways to improve the wound care system by offering innovative ideas in prevention, treatment, management and research worldwide.
