Linda Haskins States; It started many moons ago when I saw the passion of wound care management in someone that I have not even realized exists in Al Jaziera Hospital at that time. This passion has truly inspired and encouraged me me not just to provide her the opportunity to become a wound care nurse but allowed her to push this passion to ultimate boundaries, and hence the final outcome of this is evident in our President Elect WUWHS 2020- Gulnaz Tariq.
WUWHS 2020 is truly the most exhilarating opportunity for healthcare professionals in the region to demonstrate what they are doing to improve our patients living with very complexed wounds and often limited resource and still change the services for the patient, the community and the country. It is going to place Abu Dhabi and UAE on the map demonstrating healthcare leadership and display the evidence based work of our wound care guru's (experts) is a force to be reckoned with.
