Maggot Therapy Workshops
The BioTherapeutics, Education and Research (BTER) Foundation sponsors
workshops to train health care providers in the Principles
and Practice of Maggot Therapy.
Some of the workshops are held in Southern California, near the Foundation office.
The program is also presented in other regions of the country, produced in collaboration with other Universities, hospitals and agencies.
Attendees learn how, when, and why to use maggot debridement therapy effectively for their patients with non-healing wounds.
Participants will have the opportunity to practice applying maggot dressings on mock patients,
will learn what other dressing materials work well with maggot dressings,
and learn how maggot debridement therapy (MDT) can be integrated successfully as an adjunct to conventional wound care.
Target Audience: Physicians, surgeons, podiatrists, nurses, physical therapists, and other primary care and wound care specialists.
