Nursing sensitive quality measures are important for wound, ostomy, and continence (WOC) nurses to use as they demonstrate the value of the care WOC nurses provide. Nursing has a responsibility to measure, evaluate and improve practice.

The Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) has identified a set of measures for WOC nurses to use in practice to demonstrate the value of the care, both quality and costs, provided by WOC nurses that improve patient care and outcomes: The WOC Quality Measure Set. . The WOCN WOC Quality Measure set includes measures focused on pressure injury and continence.
