Your Health and Safety is Our #1 Priority 

As of January 6, 2021

Our wound, ostomy, and continence (WOC) care community is in our hearts and thoughts as we continue to navigate these unprecedented times. The health and safety of our community is always our #1 priority and, in light of the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic, it remains crucial to our organization to protect the well-being of our attendees, exhibitors, and supporters, as well as their family members, colleagues and patients. Because of this, the WOCN® Board of Directors and the WOCN National Conference Planning Committee have made the difficult decision to transition our education event, WOCNext® 2021: A Joint WOW Experience with the WOCN Society and Relias, from a hybrid event to an online-only experience.

While we originally planned to offer a hybrid experience featuring both online and in-person components, we are grateful to be able to move forward with providing our attendees the opportunity to further their education, while connecting and collaborating with like-minded healthcare professionals in a virtual environment that ensures the health and safety of all involved.

If you have attended a WOCNext or Wild on Wounds (WOW) event in the past, you have experienced the excitement and energy of being uplifted by your peers and you have been inspired by the power of education and the moving speakers. WOCNext® 2021: A Virtual WOW Experience with the WOCN® Society and Relias will still deliver all of that, and more! More types of education. More ways to learn. More people to add to your online network. More ideas for ways to achieve better outcomes for your patients.

While we continue to work out the details to transition our exciting lineup of education, speakers, sessions, networking, and activities online, we welcome you to sign up for event alerts and visit our FAQs page for the latest updates. Additional information will be available soon.

Thank you for your support and patience as we continue to plan a safer and more innovative experience for you.

Stay well,
