The WOCN Society’s Annual Conference is Now
After celebrating the 50th anniversary of the WOCN Society and the WOC nursing specialty, the National Conference Planning Committee (NCPC) couldn’t help but wonder what was next for our annual event. We took the time to really focus on prior events and the educational needs of WOC nurses and other like-minded clinicians. What feedback from attendees can we incorporate into future events? What types of learning models do our attendees enjoy? Where is the industry heading? What are the most recent trends we should be incorporating in to our event?
Motivated by the ever-changing healthcare landscape and the increase of innovation and technology in healthcare, we set out to shake up the way we would incorporate information sharing, education and attendee experience in 2019 and beyond. The result was WOCNext, an event for WOC nurses and other healthcare professionals dedicated to providing expert care to patients with wound, ostomy and incontinence needs. From networking opportunities, schedule flexibility, varied educational formats and increased opportunities for product knowledge, there is something for everyone at WOCNext 2019.
