Abstracts Now Being Accepted for the 50th Annual Conference

2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN®). Over the last half-century, the rich history of evidence-based research presented at each Annual Conference has contributed to the advances in WOC care. Clinicians have incorporated this research to develop practice standards, increase patient safety, improve clinical outcomes and empower generations of nurses.

We encourage you to contribute to our historic legacy by submitting an abstract describing a research study, case study or practice innovation to be presented at the 50th Annual Conference. The deadline to submit an abstract is Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 11:00am EST/8:00am PST. Authors will receive notification in December 2017.

NEW this year: Bring your research to life with an electronic poster (ePoster). Click here for more information on ePosters.
Before you prepare and submit an abstract, carefully review the abstract submission process.
Following the guidelines will increase the chance your abstract will be selected.
If you have any questions, please contact the Abstract Chair, Jody Scardillo, DNP, RN, ANP-BC, CWOCN, at ascardil@verizon.net with the subject line "Abstract Question" or contact the National Office at 888-224-9626 and info@wocn.org.
Sage Products will provide the WOCN Society with an unrestricted educational grant to offer a limited number of travel scholarships to support first-time abstract presenters with a focus on Preventative Practices for Wounds. If your submission meets this criteria, you should check off the first-time presenter button and make sure you choose Preventative Practices under the Wound category.
