1. I want to take advantage of the member discount on registration fees, but my membership expires soon. What should I do?

2. I want to register now, but I can only pay by check. Is that an option?
This year everyone can register online. If you are going to pay by check, you can now submit all of your information online and opt for a check payment at the end of your registration process.
3. I noticed that the format of this year's schedule is different. Will this change the way we evaluate sessions and receive Contact Hours?
This year the education at WOCNext will be presented under trending healthcare themes:
- Symptom Science
- Clinical Care Innovations
The themes are new and allow us to more seamlessly integrate our specialties of wound, ostomy, continence, and professional practice material into current and meaningful areas of focus in healthcare. Not to worry, each session still falls under one or more of these specialties and your evaluation process and access to Contact Hours will not be affected. Each session's specialty is listed under the session description in the event schedule.
4. I see that that "increased product knowledge" is something that is listed as new this year. What does that mean for attendees and exhibitors?
Given your feedback, we have allotted more time to make one-on-one or small group appointments with vendors in order to allow attendees to meet with vendors regarding products that they would like more information about. This also allows exhibitors to spend the time needed to answer more in-depth questions in a setting that is a little less busy and noisy than the usual vendor hall hours. You will use MyWOCN to create these appointments, which can be scheduled from 11am - 12pm on both Monday and Tuesday. More information on the scheduling tool will be coming soon!
5. Is the education provided at WOCNext just for WOC nurses?
The education provided at WOCNext is applicable to a wide variety of healthcare clinicians; including, but not limited to, nurses, advanced practice nurses, physician’s assistants, physicians, and physical therapists. Whether you work in a hospital, clinic, skilled nursing facility, long term acute care, respite, home health, tele-health, or provide mobile health care for those experiencing homelessness. If you work with patients that have wounds, ostomies or incontinence needs, this event is for you. The content being offered is equally applicable to those working in research, quality improvement, and the legal profession. There’s something for everyone at WOCNext!
