While we all wish we could be together in Chicago for a three-day conference to discuss high-quality content and cutting-edge research findings, The American College of Wound Healing and Tissue Repair (ACWHTR) is pleased to announce an innovative new concept and educational platform for its annual meeting: ACWHTR LIVE!
ACWHTR LIVE! will be a year-round virtual education and exhibition experience like no other! The programs we have created will surpass prior expectations. As we have witnessed during this year, medical knowledge evolves quickly and we believe a fast-changing world warrants quarterly updates in which live panel sessions and cutting edge technology and research findings can be presented, along with new on-demand opportunities. This educational platform will also allow the American College to provide a flexible solution for the 2021 calendar year.
Once a quarter, ACWHTR will provide 10-15 hours of live virtual CME content for members and wound care professionals delivering quality education and engagement opportunities with colleagues, peers and industry leaders. Each quarter will incorporate several didactic subjects that follow the core curriculum of the wound healing and tissue repair fellowship program. An attendee, by participating in the 4-session format, will be able to broaden their knowledge and appreciate the contributions made by the many providers that make up a comprehensive wound healing team.
Each session will: 1) include subjects from selected core content areas; 2) include health policy, research and interesting clinical updates; and 3) discuss lessons learned from other fields of medicine which can be directly applied to the wound healing field. Registrants will be able to select the educational experience that best fits their needs and time constraints. Select an all-access pass to gain entry to all 4 live events, register for single quarter live pass, or select quarterly on-demand education as it becomes available post-event.
In addition to the educational content, we will be offering a high-tech, unique option for attendees to visit virtual exhibits throughout the year, enabling more personal interaction with exhibitors on your own schedule. The hall will be updated by industry in real-time so attendees can keep up on the latest industry updates, product launches and clinical studies as they are released. Take your time looking at the exhibits without the distraction of hundreds of people. You can interact with vendors during our AC Wounds LIVE! quarterly events or set up opportunities to dive deeper into the products that interest you on your schedule throughout the year.
COVID-19 has forever changed how we will seek, consume and value educational experiences in the medical community. The American College of Wound Healing and Tissue Repair is creating many other new opportunities for learning and growing value for our membership in the months ahead.
