Preparations are well underway for the leg ulcer conference. The Leg Ulcer Charity is running a conference over three days at the College of Phlebology’s 1st International Veins Conference. This is going to be held in London on 15-17 March 2017.

Today Susan Ostler, lead nurse at the Whiteley Clinic, was one of several researchers practising their talks ready for the conference.

The leg ulcer conference is going to concentrate on several aspects of leg ulcer care:

  • leg ulcer dressings
  • leg ulcer compression
  • assessment of patients with leg ulcers
  • guidelines from the Royal College of nurses on the assessment of leg ulcers

However, it is also going to bring new information to nurses, doctors and carers as to how many leg ulcers can be improved and even cured. This would not only save money, but it would give back patients their quality-of-life.

Thus the conference is also going to discuss:

  • assessment of the underlying causes of venous ulcers
  • new devices to help cure venous ulcers
  • the role of endovenous treatments under local anaesthetic to cure venous ulcers
  • the NICE guidelines and conflict with other guidelines for the management of leg ulcers

We are thrilled that this conference is going to be held in conjunction with the Lindsay leg clubs. We are very hopeful that we will be able to cross-fertilise information from the specialist clinic setting and the community setting for the benefit of all patients.
