Date:1/13/2009

WOCN Society's 41st Annual Conference scheduled for June 6-10 in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) has announced its 2009 Annual Conference schedule, which was developed to meet the learning needs of all professionals providing wound, ostomy and continence patient care. "Now more than ever, attendees can move their conference education to the next level by creating a schedule that is uniquely suited to their personal needs," said Janice C. Colwell, WOCN President. "While many conferences present generic learning opportunities, the WOCN's Annual Conference will encourage participants to select programs that are compatible with participants' skill levels, practice settings and learning styles," she added. The conference will be held June 6-10 in St. Louis.

Responding to Changes in Health Care

Critical changes in the health care field were the impetus for the enhanced learning format. During the fall of 2008, health care facilities came under increased pressure to conduct thorough preadmission screenings to identify conditions that are present on admission (POA). Medicare reimbursement changes in the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 required that if a patient developed a hospital-acquired condition that is not POA, inpatient facilities were no longer reimbursed by Medicare for treating that condition.

This change puts the highly skilled professionals in the field of wound, ostomy and continence care in an even more important role of managing and directing health care, according to the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society. WOC nurses are uniquely qualified to positively impact patient care and cost containment under the new system. The WOCN Society encourages health care facilities to empower their nursing staff to improve their knowledge in these key
