Welcome to the 22nd European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel Annual Meeting website!

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to our considering different conference scenarios and the EPUAP Executive Board has decided to:

  • hold an EPUAP Virtual Meeting on 24th September 2020 => more information HERE
  • reschedule our EPUAP Annual Meeting in Prague from 2020 to 18 - 20 October 2021



It has become clear that rescheduling the planned EPUAP Annual Meeting in Prague 2020 to 2021 is the only reasonable solution, and we hope that you understand that the safety and health of our EPUAP community is most important at these times. We are turning the international pandemic and the ‘new normal’  into a positive experience for all participants. Our priority is that no opportunity is lost for our attendees and that we are able to widen the reach of our meetings this year and in the future through videoconferencing technologies.

Practical information

  • All registrations for EPUAP 2020 will be transferred to EPUAP 2021 (with a refund option if required).
  • Option to transfer abstracts submitted to EPUAP Annual Meeting Prague 2020 to either the EPUAP Virtual Meeting 2020 or the rescheduled EPUAP Annual Meeting Prague 2021.
  • Exhibition that has already been booked for the Prague Annual Meeting 2020 will be transferred to EPUAP Annual Meeting Prague 2021. 

 

The conference theme is:

FROM INNOVATION AND GUIDELINES, TO HIGH QUALITY CARE AND BETTER PATIENT OUTCOMES: A JOURNEY TO TRAVEL TOGETHER!
