Asian Wound Care Association will take its meeting this year to Malaysia’s Selangor, bringing together some 500 local and international delegates who will share knowledge and expertise on the best practices in wound care management.
Asian Wound Care Association & 3rd Global Wound Conference 2021 is brought in by the Malaysian Society of Wound Care Professionals, and will be held from October 15 to 17 at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre.
In a press statement, Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) said the conference was a significant bid win for Malaysia. The event is expected to establish an estimated RM5.26 million (US$1.26 million) in economic impact.
Abdul Khani Daud, MyCEB CEO said: “Having the opportunity to host an event that gathers reputable authorities in the field of wound care under one roof to further discuss the advancement towards wound care standards for patients and healthcare professional performance reflects Malaysia’s astounding ranking as Best Healthcare in the World Category of the 2019 International Living Annual Global Retirement Index.”
Founding president of Malaysian Society of Wound Care Professionals, Harikrishna K R Nair, commented: “When wound care becomes increasingly important, I believe hosting this conference in Malaysia will provide a great learning opportunity for the health care professionals in this region in interdisciplinary team approaches that deliver best practices for improved patient outcomes and disseminate educational and training toolkits created in practical, relevant and adaptable formats.”
He added that the society is aiming next to work with MyCEB to secure the future edition of World Wound Healing Congress, “which is the Olympic kind of event in our field”.
