lFor over 40 years the UHMS has been the primary source of information for hyperbaric medicine and physiology worldwide. This symposium has as its goal to address identified professional practice gaps and provide a quality CME opportunity which will improve scientific knowledge and skills for hyperbaric and wound care: physicians, nurses and technicians, and other clinicians and personnel whose practice includes hyperbaric medicine and wound care.
As a result of attending this symposium, participants should be able to:
· Have better knowledge of the current state of the art of hyperbaric medicine and wound care;
· Describe the impacts and relationship of hyperbaric medicine and wound care;
· Identify approaches for assessment and treatment of problem wounds commonly referred to wound centers and hyperbaric medicine facilities;
· Discuss procedures which enhance the quality care and outcomes of patients.
