Post-Acute Care Symposium (PACS)



2021 Post-Acute Care Symposium (PACS)

October 30th to 31st, 2021

Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas, NV

The 2021 Post-Acute Care Symposium (PACS) will be co-located with the 2021 SAWC Fall Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Meeting details will be announced soon.

Regardless of the post-acute care setting, long-term acute care, skilled nursing, home, or hospice, finding the optimal pathway to managing and treating wound and incontinence issues for patients/residents has become ever more challenging. The Post-Acute Care Symposium is designed exclusively to provide professionals in post-acute facilities the tools they need to meet today’s day-to-day challenges with a curriculum that focuses on the strategies necessary for implementing clinical practice guidelines, protocols, and care pathways for wound and incontinence interventions. This year's meeting will be a multidisciplinary approach and focus on reimbursement changes with PDPM and PDGM.
