Medline to Highlight Holistic Approach to Wound Care

and Skin Health at Symposium on Advanced Wound Care


NORTHFIELD, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Medline today announced the launch of a new Skin Champion Program at this year’s Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) in Charlotte, April 25-29. With more than 6.5 million people in the U.S. suffering from chronic wounds, the Medline Skin Champion Program will provide new approaches to those who battle and treat non-healing wounds across the continuum of care and provide easy-to-use education and tools for wound care clinicians and leaders.


Medline also will host a live studio news show from SAWC, featuring nearly 20 key advanced wound care and tissue regeneration opinion leaders who will provide clinical expertise and insight to the more than 2,000 physicians and nurses visiting the conference.


“Wound care has become increasingly complex with the rise in patient acuity and ongoing reimbursement challenges,” says Jonathan Primer, group president, advanced wound care, Medline. “For clinicians, this new landscape is creating greater demand for education and fueling a deeper desire to discover new ways to improve clinical practice and patient care.”


Located at booth 1025, Medline will unveil the new Skin Champion Program developed by certified WOC nurses and designed to provide education and tools that help train their teams to make skin health second nature. Dozens of pre-built educational modules address four common issues impacting wound care, including pressure injuries, skin care, wound etiologies and special populations.
