WOCN Society Conference
Library Pass and Mobile App
Each WOCN Society Annual Conference attendee can access all workshops and conference sessions through the Annual Conference Library Pass. Pass holders can search, view and download sessions, take notes and share the pass with colleagues.
In addition to the Library Pass, attendees can also access the Annual Conference Mobile App, which allows for access to varied conference features and information at their fingertips.
Live streaming of select conference sessions is provided to WOCN Society members free of charge, thanks to support by Hollister Incorporated.
The following symposia sessions at the WOCN Society's 50th Annual Conference are supported by Hollister Incorporated:
Using Evidence Based Data to Promote Peristomal Skin Health In Your Practice
Development of a Patient Peristomal Skin Assessment Guide
The Peristomal Skin Assessment Guide for Clinicians is a tool that provides basic guidance to clinicians on identifying and treating peristomal skin complications, including instructions for patient care and conditions that warrant referral to a WOC/NSWOC (Nurse Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence).
The Peristomal Skin Assessment Guide for Consumers is a tool that provides basic guidance for teens and adults living with an ostomy. It is designed to help identify common skin problems, provide next steps for care or management and appropriately prompt individuals to seek care or support from a WOC nurse or NSWOC for additional support.
