EPUAP ANNUAL MEETING 2021 IMPORTANT UPDATES
On behalf of the EPUAP Executive Board, we would like to inform you that considering the current coronavirus situation, it was decided to:
- Reschedule our onsite EPUAP Annual Meeting in Prague from 2021 to 14 – 16 September 2022
- Hold an EPUAP Virtual Meeting 18 – 19 October 2021 with an updated scientific programme reflecting the current situation
- Reschedule EPUAP Annual Meeting in Leeds from 2022 to 2023
The registrations for the EPUAP Annual Meeting 2021 will be automatically transferred to the 2022 edition.
We hope for your understanding as it is very difficult to make any long-term plans and considering the safety and health of our EPUAP delegates, speakers and exhibitors, we have made a decision that will allow us to plan for a future onsite conference in Prague in 2022.
We consider our responsibility to offer a platform for knowledge sharing and education on pressure ulcers in the context of COVID-19 pandemic and have decided to organize a 2-day virtual event. The EPUAP Virtual Meeting 2021 will include many of the key sessions planned in the existing scientific programme for 2021 and will focus on the lessons learned during COVID-19 pandemic in the field of prevention and treatment. The virtual event will offer a valuable source of education, networking and experience sharing among delegates, speakers, and industry.
Please let us know if you would like to register for the virtual meeting in October. We will be posting more details about this 2-day virtual event and the registration fees as soon as possible.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you very much for your understanding.
