Learn How to Influence Policy Decisions
The future growth and vitality of wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) nursing is largely dependent on the ability of our professionals to influence key decisions made in our nation's capital. These policy decisions are essential to preserving the future of our practices, our health care facilities, and the patient populations that we serve. To protect our field of nursing, we must develop and deliver effective messages from credible messengers to our elected officials about the quality of our patient care and its importance to the community.
