VLU Best Practice -
Embracing new ways of working to change lives

This interactive educational event will support you in adopting a solutions based approach to effectively manage VLUs. You will hear about how this approach has been adopted nationally to transform outcomes and have a chance to put new knowledge into practice in a virtual clinic.

You will also have the opportunity to apply for a place on the Clinical Leadership Programme, an educational support programme to further develop your clinical and personal development skills which includes a 2 day event later on in the year.
