Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Fall (SAWC Fall) 2023 - Abstract Submission Submission Portal

SAWC Fall 2023 will begin accepting submissions on Monday, April 24, 2023. Acceptance/Decline notifications will be sent out by Friday, July 7, 2023.

The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) is committed to providing the highest level of clinical education and information for physicians, nurses, physical therapists, researchers, podiatrists, and dietitians involved in wound healing or wound care issues.

To be accepted to present an oral or poster abstract during the upcoming SAWC meeting, each proposed presentation must be described in an abstract. These abstracts are blind-reviewed by a panel of expert judges. Each abstract will be reviewed based on specific criteria for the category in which it is placed. Therefore, it is very important for the author to specify which category the abstract should be entered.

Abstract Presentations

You may select one of the three (3) presentation types for consideration: Additionally, you may also select to be considered for Poster Grand Rounds
Please note: Commercial interests are not eligible to participate in the SAWC Oral Abstract or Grand Rounds sessions as those sessions are for CE credit. The ACCME, ACPE, ANCC and CPME defines a “commercial interest” as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients with the exemption of non-profit or governmental organizations and non-healthcare related companies.
