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.

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. This belief led to the birth of Interventional Patient Hygiene, a nursing action plan focused on fortifying patients' host defenses with evidence-based care. By promoting a return to the basics of nursing care, our advanced patient hygiene products and programs help health care facilities improve clinical outcomes by reducing the risk of hospital-acquired infection and skin breakdown.
