We look forward to working with them.”

Ms. Shaikha Al Qahtani, Director of Nursing for Wound Care at HMC and Chair of the Conference’s Organizing Committee said that the three-day conference will provide knowledge and information sharing on a range of different topics related to wound care. She said: “We have an extensive and comprehensive program and I am delighted that healthcare professionals from a number of organizations across Qatar will be attending. I am sure they will find it very useful and beneficial in their continuous learning about the practice of wound care.” She added: “We are proud to be holding this conference and look forward to welcoming leading experts in the field of wound care to Qatar.”
