WOCN Society and Sage Products Proudly Present: Partners in Prevention
The WOCN Society and Sage share the core philosophy of prevention—WOC nurses use evidence-based care and prevention strategies with their patients, while Sage develops products that prevent skin damage. Both understand that evidence-based interventions will lead to improved patient outcomes.
Together, the WOCN Society and Sage Products have formed the Partners in Prevention program, which provides WOC nurses with the tools they need to prevent hospital-acquired conditions through various initiatives, including a webinar series, symposium and poster presenter travel awards.
Partners in Prevention 2016 Webinar Series
The WOCN Society has teamed up with Sage Products to present a webinar series designed to help WOC nurses further their knowledge in advancing and supporting the prevention of pressure ulcers.

Sage First Time Poster Presenter Travel Scholarship Award
Sage also offers first-time poster presenters with travel scholarships for the WOCN Society's Annual Conference. This award was designed to provide awards to first time poster presenters whose research focuses on prevention to help alleviate the cost of attending the WOCN Society's Annual Conference. This scholarship can be used to offset conference expenses including registration, hotel, airfare and meals.
The Partners in Prevention program is commercially supported through an educational grant from Sage Products.
About Sage Products, Inc.
Sage's core belief is prevention—that evidence-based interventions will lead to improved outcomes.
