The Center for Advanced Wound Care was founded in 1999. The reason behind its existence is due to the fact that patients often stay for long periods of time in the hospital for wound care.

The goal of The Center for Advanced Wound Care is to improve the quality of care and service for its patients with different types of wounds, both in a hospital setting as well as for those in an ambulatory setting.

Because of the demand for further knowledge of wound care among caregivers, we are organizing the 4th Wound Care Symposium.

This year our program will be filled with new topics and innovations in the field of wound care. For the first time our program will include a “Hands-on” session which will be primarily for physicians and specialists and registered nurses with wound care experience.

A completely new and invasive symposium that no caregiver can miss with the focus on Advanced wound care.

We cordially invite you to be a part of this 2-day innovative and instructive symposium.

Meet our dynamic team:

The 4th Island Wound Care Symposium is organized by the wound consultants of the Dr. Horacio E. Oduber Hospitaal together with Dr. Yuri Casseres (surgeon and medical coordinator Center for Advanced Wound care).
