Letter from the President

To our valued members,

As 2015 draws to a close, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks for your considerable support of the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) throughout the year. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to share with you the WOCN Society 2015 Year in Review which outlines how the Society is working to advance the wound, ostomy and continence specialty.

While the WOCN Society 2015 Year in Review is by no means inclusive of all of the Society's projects and goals, it does provide a few key highlights of our efforts to expand awareness, education, advocacy/public policy and clinical tools in 2015. If you would like more information about any of these initiatives, including more detailed accounts of our public policy efforts, please visit

Without your support, it would not have been possible to complete many of the important projects featured in this report. The Society continues to search for passionate members to volunteer for special projects. Those projects include content validation, peer review, pilot testing, committees and special task forces. The more volunteers we have, the more we can do to advance the specialty. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit

Thank you again for your continued commitment, enthusiasm and dedication to both the Society and the WOC specialty, and Season’s Greetings to you and your families with best wishes for the New Year!

Carolyn Watts, MSN, RN, CWON
WOCN Society President
