The Leg Ulcer and Compression Week is an international event aiming at raising awareness and educating healthcare professionals on the management and treatment of patients with venous leg ulcers.
This year in France, the Leg Ulcer and Compression Week took place from November 21st to 27th.
For this new edition, the Urgo Foundation has joined forces with health professionals recognized for their expertise to offer two webinars. The objective? To address to the major challenges faced by front-line caregivers of this pathology: nurses and general practitioners.
The webinar for physicians was led by Dr. Meaume (Dermatologist and geriatrician at Rothschild Hospital) and Dr. Carvalho (Dermatologist at Rouen University Hospital).
The program included topics such as the choice of compression system, prescription and referral to a specialist.
