FORT WORTH, Texas -- Healthpoint, Ltd., a market leader in tissue-management pharmaceuticals and biologics, will offer a satellite program and two scientific poster presentations at the 19th Annual Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care, scheduled for Sept. 30 through Oct. 3, 2004 at the Phoenix Civic Plaza in Phoenix, Ariz.
The conference is expected to draw more than 1,000 physicians, podiatrists, nurses, physical therapists and others who manage skin and wound-care patients across the continuum of healthcare.
An important part of Healthpoints commitment to wound care involves giving back through research and education, said Scott Goodridge, Healthpoint product director for wound management. We are pleased to be able to attend the conference, where we can share and exchange ideas with others in the wound-care community. After all, its through education that we all learn and become better resources for healthcare providers and, in turn, for their patients.
One poster presentation, titled Comparison of Different Collagen Preparations Used as an Adjunct with Becaplermin Gel in Chronic Leg Wounds, is by Dr. Stanley N. Carson and several of his colleagues in the wound-care program at Fountain Valley Regional Hospital in Fountain Valley, Calif.
The other poster, A Balsam Peru, Castor Oil, Trypsin Ointment in the Management of Radiation Skin Reactions, is by Sue Hill and Carole Dalbey. Both are nurses affiliated with the Ostomy Center at Banner Baywood Medical Center in Mesa, Ariz.
The two poster presentations can be viewed on Thursday, Sept. 30, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and on Friday, Oct. 1, and Saturday, Oct. 2, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day. The principal investigators will be available to discuss their abstracts in person at the Thursday-evening session.
Healthpoint is also sponsoring a satellite program titled, Improving Patient Outcomes and Practice Efficiency Through a Spray Drug-Delivery Form. It will be offered on Friday, Oct. 1, 2004 from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. by Walter Conlan, MD, medical director of the Orlando Regional Medical Center Wound Healing Centers in Orlando, Fla.
In addition, Healthpoint encourages conference attendees to visit Booth 301 on the exhibition floor between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 1, or Saturday, Oct. 2, for special half-hour Video Rounds sessions. Each Video Rounds session includes a demonstration of the who, what, when, where and why of Healthpoint products, and is designed to promote the discussion of product features and attributes. Participants will each receive a single-use camera with Healthpoints compliments.
