The OntWIG executive are excited to share the proceedings document from our 2016 Symposium. The symposium featured excellent presentations and discussion from a diverse range of speakers and participants. This report focuses on the discussions and recommendations that were generated at the symposium.
We hope you enjoy reading through the document and look forward to further collaboration and progress with you at our next Symposium, April 21st, 2017.
Healthcare providers and organizations in Ontario have a long history of commitment to improving the quality of wound care. For decades, many Hospitals, Long-Term Care Homes and community provider agencies have developed wound assessment, management and prevention protocols and educational plans independent of each other. These unique, organization-specific approaches have resulted in inconsistencies as patients are transitioned from one organization to another and from one healthcare sector to another.

We value your engagement and truly believe each of you lived up to the theme of the symposium: ENGAGE.ALIGN.INFLUENCE.
