Some exciting news to share.  On Friday, April 12 at the RNAO's AGM, the Ontario Woundcare Interest Group received the "Interest Group of the Year" award for all our advocacy work!  We are so grateful to all our members for your contributions all these years. We really couldn't have done it without you!  This award is for all of us who advocate daily for our patients especially in the area of wound care.

Come see what OntWIG has been up to and learn about Leveraging the Interprofessional Team!  We have an amazing line up of speakers for you!

We are very excited to have Tracey DasGupta as our keynote speaker. Tracey is the Director of Interprofessional Practice at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, who will speak to us about “Team Stories: Today and Envisioning Tomorrow”. Looking deeper at the conceptual framework of building interprofessional teams and building new perspectives.  She will be moderating a wonderful panel of inter-professionals including Dr. Robert Sargeant from St. Michael’s Hospital, Christine Murphy (President of NSWOCC (Nurses Specializing in Wound, Ostomy and Continence Canada)), Rick Werkman, Chiropodist and a Registered Dietician, Carrie Johnston from Hamilton Health Sciences who will discuss how to optimize patient outcomes while building an interprofessional team.

We are also excited about the diverse speakers lined up for you across sectors as well as professions. We have the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care sharing with us updates on wound care funding and plans. We will hear from your colleagues in the LHINs about best practices of interprofessional practice from their day to day and learn more about how to tackle challenges using Think Research’s tools and resources.
