- Insights into the patient experience
- Top tips on how to listen and communicate with patients more eﬀectively

- Excellent networking opportunities with clinicians
Currently, a leg ulcer takes an average of 210 days to heal.
With the right action, we have the power to heal patients with leg ulcers, even faster.
This is why the Urgo Foundation, in partnership with Legs Matter took the initiative to organise ‘European Leg Ulcer Days’.
In 2018, the initiative was renewed in France and Spain, and extended to the UK, in order to not only sustain, but spread these training practices.
In 2018, the project in the UK will take place in 3 major cities, to heighten the conversation around “engaging in dialogue with our patient”.
Jeanette Milne will act as chair throughout Leg Ulcer Days.
Honey Langcaster James, a psychologist will discuss psychological impact on patients living with leg ulcers
Brenda King and Sarah Gardner will provide practical tools on how motivational interviews, therapeutic education and patient assessment can be used to encourage patient participation in their care.
