Poster Abstracts 

The 2024 Mayo Clinic Wound Symposium: The Edges of Wound Care will feature a poster session with the goal of sharing knowledge, showcasing participants’ work, and stimulating dialogue among conference attendees. All approved posters will be virtually displayed to all symposium attendees. The top 10 posters will be invited to present their poster at the live symposium during the poster session.   

Posters can feature data-driven original research on any aspect of wound care, describe innovative clinical programs or projects related to the assessment and treatment of wound patients, or explicate training methods used to increase clinician effectiveness in evaluating such patients.  

Participants are encouraged to submit projects highlighting programs and initiatives that impact the practice, education, research, and administrative environments in health care, and abstracts that provide evidence and successful models for engaging targeted stakeholders and constituents and advancing health care delivery. 

We invite you to take advantage of the unique opportunity and submit an abstract to be presented as a poster during the Wound Symposium: The Edges of Wound Care 2024. Submission due date has been extended to end of day, February 8, 2024

 

Mayo Clinic Wound Ambassador Dinner - Case Presentation Abstracts

Thursday, February 29, 5:15-7:30 PM

Case presentations, Discussion and Question and Answer Session with Faculty and Audience

Challenging wound care cases will be presented and discussed the evening of February 29, 2024. The purpose of the case presentations will be to enhance an open and transparent educational opportunity for each of the attendees to learn approaches to various wound care diagnostic and treatment pathways. The discussions will be based upon peer reviewed published data and clinical expertise. This will be an open forum style question and answer format led by the Wound Symposium organizers and faculty.

Please feel free to submit a case presentation abstract (300 words or less, no photos or references to products or devices in the abstract submissions), that would be a 5–10-minute case presentation with accompanying up to 5 PowerPoint slides.

Case abstracts submission due date has been extended to end of day, February 8, 2024. The organizing committee will review each submitted case presentation and submitters will be notified by February 12, 2024, of a decision. Final PowerPoint presentations (5 slides maximum) are due by February 16, 2024. We anticipate accepting up to 8 cases for presentation.
