HQO recomendations for compression - Your valuable input is needed

~~One of the initiatives set forward from the OntWIG membership was to suggest that Health Quality Ontario do a health technology assessment on compression stockings for prevention of venous leg ulcer recurrence.  This assessment has been completed and HQO is now looking for feedback on both the assessment and the associated funding recommendation that has been made under the guidance of the Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee.

OntWIG's 8th Symposium Procedings

Thanks to everyone who participated in OntWIG's 8th Annual Symposium and helped us celebrate 10 years!  It was a wonderful chance to connect and learn more about how far we have come in advocating for wound care in Ontario. We are very grateful for all the interdisciplinary members who were able to participate with us, as well as industry sponsors. 

Please read over the proceedings document to learn more about what happened at the symposium and what you missed out on!

Update from the Health Minister and HQO on offloading devices

Dear OntWIG members,

We are extremely excited that at last week's RNAO AGM, the Health Minister Dr. Hoskins announced that offloading devices for Diabetic feet will be covered by the provincial government.

We want to ensure that OntWIG members are acknowledged in this process and your efforts are recognised. It's been at least 2 years in the making; starting from OntWIG's working group, Health Quality Ontario discussions, and submission to the Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee, every step was a team effort.
