Authors will receive notifications in December 2016.

All accepted abstracts will be presented in some form during the conference, available on the WOCN website and printed in a supplement of the Journal of Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing. Only accepted Research abstracts will be considered for oral presentations. If your abstract is not accepted for an oral presentation, it will be presented as a poster presentation.

Sage Products will provide the WOCN® Society with an unrestricted educational grant to offer a limited number of travel scholarships to support first-time abstract presenters with a focus on Preventative Practices for Wounds. If your submission meets this criteria, you should check off the first-time presenter button and make sure you choose Preventative Practices under the Wound category.

WOCN Society would like to recognize our Industry Supporters
