EWMA 2020/TVS

You may have seen the recent announcement about the postponement of the EWMA 2020 conference.

The Tissue Viability Society (TVS) fully supports EWMA’s decision to  postpone EWMA 2020 in London to November 18th – 20th due to the unprecedented global events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

This decision is made with wholehearted concern for the health and welfare for our global, European and local communities. EWMA & TVS   believe this is the most responsible action to take when the skills and care from our committed wound and health care community are most needed by our fellow human beings at this time.

As we enter a period of ‘unchartered waters’ TVS would like to wish all healthcare workers and wider wound care community continued strength to support and deliver healthcare, as always, via their scientific knowledge, care, compassion, collaborative and leadership skills.

Please rest assured that the ‘EWMA team’ are working tirelessly to get the best overall outcome and minimise costs for everyone during this difficult period, so please bear with us.

EWMA and the Tissue Viability Society really look forward to warmly welcoming you to EWMA 2020 on November 18th-20th at the EXCEL in London UK. 

This years theme of ‘Global Collaboration for Local Action’ has never appeared more appropriate.

We are delighted to be the cooperating society for the  #EWMA2020  conference which will now take place on the 18-20 November in London. The TVS will therefore not be having a 2020 conference of their own.

The venue is the ExCel which is positioned in the heart of London and provides easy access of public and private transportation.
