The WOCN Society is a professional nursing society, which supports its members by promoting educational, clinical, and research opportunities to advance the practice and guide the delivery of expert health care to individuals with wounds, ostomies and continence concerns.
Last week, the WOCN Society released a new algorithm focusing on the role of compression therapy in the prevention, treatment and prevention of recurrence of venous leg ulcers.
The Society developed this tool to address a growing need for clinical guidance in this area. Read the JWOCN article to learn more about the algorithm's development and try the algorithm now.
