The WOCN Society has updated its image library, available through the WOCN website. This members-only library holds images related to wound, ostomy and continence patients that can be used for both educational and personal use and in any learning situation. The added benefit? These photos come directly from other WOC nurses.
To keep our library up to date and full of content, are asking that members help us build the library and submit any images that would be beneficial. We are searching for diverse and educational photos that can be used by the entire WOCN community.
Submitting photos is easy and can be done by any member. By using the submission form found through the WOCN website, you can share your images while building the WOC library.
The images can be of anything that you find helpful, educational or interesting. From wound before and after pictures to images of the patients you treat. Don’t forget the team you work with! Nurses and staff treating patients and partaking in their day to day routine make great images for the library and can used quite often! When taking any picture, remember to obtain the subject’s permission before publishing any photos. Images should be high resolution and can be taken by yourself or by someone you know. If they are taken from a source it is important to remember to reference the image. The WOCN Image Library page will guide you through this process so the image is correctly referenced.
Grab your cameras and start snapping some photos! We can’t wait to see what you post!
