Announcing a new tool for bedside clinicians

Posted By Lauren Schoener-Gaynor, Thursday, April 2, 2015

The WOCN Society is pleased to announce the launch of an electronic version of the support surface selection algorithm. Clinicians may now access the algorithm electronically via smartphones, tablets, and other internet-connected devices. The algorithm, published earlier this year in the Journal of Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing, is the first evidence- and consensus-based algorithm for support surface selection that has undergone content validation.

 

The Society created the electronic version in order to provide bedside clinicians with easily-accessible information to aid in making consistent decisions about support surface selection. Development of the algorithm was funded in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Hill-Rom. 

 

Access the algorithm now and share it with colleagues who make decisions regarding the selection of support surfaces for patients.
