The Marketing & Communications Committee has recently finished a new fact sheet entitled: Fact Sheet: How Does a Wound, Ostomy and Continence (WOC) Nurse Fit into your Palliative/Hospice Care Team?
 
The goal of this fact sheet is to provide information about how wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) nurses can significantly impact the quality of care and improve patient outcomes for facilities/agencies that provide palliative/hospice care. WOC nurses are highly educated experts, who can provide evidence-based care and management for palliative/hospice care patients with wound, ostomy or continence needs. WOC nurses serve as great resources for staff, patients/caregivers, the interdisciplinary care team, and the community. This document describes the benefits, role and functions of WOC nurses in palliative/hospice care programs.
 
The new fact sheet is a located in the WOCN Document Library.
