Talking Wounds with Wendy White & Friends – 1st May 2019

The team at Wendy White WoundCare is delighted to bring to our WOUNDEd Community the 2019 calendar of education and dinner events, 'Talking Wounds' with Wendy White & Friends. The topic for our May event is 'Wound infection and biofilm: Shedding some light on the subject’. Wound infection…a significant challenge for mankind since the beginning of time. This clinical situation can lead to delayed or inhibited wound healing, increased negative lived experiences (eg increased pain and exudate, increased costs), tissue/limb loss or worst-case scenario, death. It’s a serious topic that requires some serious consideration and discussion. What we understand about the impact and influence of microorganism imbalance in wounds has changed dramatically in the last decade. Our current understanding of biofilm – described as a ‘formidable foe’ is considered an emerging science with new information, language and classifications of wound infection promoted internationally. If our knowledge is based on past understanding and antibiotic dependency – it is possible that those in our care may not be receiving optimal person, region and wound / skin interventions to prevent or manage local wound infection and wound chronicity.

Time to discover the tech talent of the Central Coast!

A new regionally-based accelerator program is on the look out for Central Coast based tech intenders and startups with the intention of offering them funded support as they start or scale up their tech-based business. The Business Centre Central Coast is looking to unearth more local tech talent to become part of its Start House incubator and accelerator program. Steve Wait, CEO of the Business Centre, said the Discovery Sessions will give local intenders or those already with a minimum viable product a chance to meet mentors and experts in residence and understand the advantages of the unique Start House program. “Start House is a no-equity incubator and accelerator program with the aim of mentoring some of the incredible local talent we have in our region to lead them to scale their businesses globally. “We have the intention of developing diversity in innovation – be it diversity in location or diversity in the age, background or life stage of the founders. “Not every start up or existing business fits the mould that other accelerator programs may cater for.” Powered by the Business Centre, Start House will support 50 start up and globally scalable enterprises across the region over the next [...]
