At Wounds Canada, we believe centring the voice of the patient is crucial to enacting change in the health-care system and delivering the best possible wound care. That's why we're proud to be hosting “Our Voices, Our Stories”—a national wound care patient experience conference. This unique two-day learning, outreach and knowledge exchange event is funded through a grant from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, led by Drs. Ide Costa, Catherine Phillips and Michelle Spadoni of Lakehead University, and Dr. Pilar Plazas of Queen's University, in collaboration with Wounds Canada. The purpose of this conference is to bring together citizens impacted by complex wounds, researchers, health and social service providers, educators, community leaders and policy makers.

This event will provide an opportunity to listen to individuals’ and families’ stories of the impact of hard-to-heal wounds on their lives, identify the gaps and synergies in wound care provision and identify areas in which holistic wound management can be enacted.
