About AAWC

SAWC Fall is the official meeting site of the Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC). AAWC is the largest professional multidisciplinary membership organization in the United States dedicated to interprofessional wound healing and tissue preservation. AAWC’s mission is to advance the care of people with and at risk for wounds. The Association promotes excellence in education, clinical practice, public policy, and research.

AAWC endorses this meeting because of the exceptional educational opportunities that are provided to wound care professionals. This year, we were pleased to present attendees with the inaugural AAWC Clinical Practice Track at SAWC Spring, which provided unprecedented core clinical, multidisciplinary, and evidence-based sessions that include practical tips that could be implemented on Monday morning. Currently, this track is only offered at SAWC Spring/WHS, so please consider this as you make your 2018 continuing education plans.

Members of AAWC have the added advantage of discounted registration fees to attend SAWC Spring/WHS and SAWC Fall. These discounts can more than cover annual membership dues. Other benefits of membership through the year include leadership and networking opportunities, governmental and regulatory alerts, automatic subscriptions to two premier wound care journals (OWM and WOUNDS), heavy discounts on educational materials, newsletters, a members-only section of the website, and participation in a variety of AAWC programs. These programs include Global Volunteers, Speakers Bureau, Scholarship Program, Wounds In Need (WIN) — a Patient Advocacy group, and more. Become a member today at to open the door to a whole year of valuable benefits!

Incorporated in 1995, AAWC is a not-for-profit association headquartered in the United States with close to 2,300 members, including nearly 75 members representing more than 30 other countries. AAWC welcomes everyone involved in wound care, including clinicians, researchers, educators, patients and their lay caregivers, facilities, industry, students, retirees, and other advocates interested in the multidisciplinary approach to wound care. Our members have the opportunity, through numerous association benefits and activities, to be part of a collaborative community that facilitates optimal care for those who suffer with wounds. This community encourages an equal partnership among all individuals who are involved in the care of patients.
