Why Attend?

Over the last 50 years, wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) nurses have made great strides in delivering expert care to people living with WOC-related health conditions. Today, WOC nurses continue to advance the specialty practice by improving quality of care and advocating for patient rights. That's why "Historic Past, Limitless Future" is the theme of the 50th Annual Conference.
