ePosters


Here are the ePosters for the Northeast Regional WOCN® Conference. These posters can be reviewed either in alphabetical order or by category. Each poster describes a research study, practice innovation, or case study, in wound, ostomy, continence care or professional practice. 

If you have questions regarding the posters feel free to reach out via email to the poster contact that is listed on their poster page. 
Awards will be given to ePosters and announced at the virtual Closing Session on Sunday, November 8, 2020. The three categories will be Research, Practice Innovation and Case Study. At the “pinnacle” of our WOCN® practice is our tradition of learning from one another and we are all strengthened by sharing our wisdom, knowledge and innovations. 

There will be awards for 1st place in each category, however it is important to all of us that we learn from the work you will share with your colleagues.

There are no CE credits being offered this year for review of the posters.

Also, don't forget to vote for your favorite poster!
