ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Registration is now underway for the 2008 Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses (WOCN) Society Annual Conference scheduled for June 21-25 in Orlando, Florida. This 40th Annual Conference offers unparalleled educational opportunities for participants to delve into topics within their area of specialization and beyond through workshops and educational sessions, as well as celebrate their past and reunite with those who have been involved with the Society's forty years of nursing excellence.

Founded in 1968, the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society is a professional, international nursing society of more than 4,200 healthcare professionals who are experts in the care of patients with wound, ostomy and incontinence. The society supports its members by promoting educational, clinical and research opportunities to advance the practice and guide the delivery of expert health care to individuals with wounds, ostomies and incontinence.

Outstanding educational opportunities

Attendees at 2008 Annual Conference can customize an educational syllabus to include research and practice skills integral to their practice and level of experience in order to maximize their practical and clinical knowledge. Over 20 total contact hours will be offered to assist with professional development.

The conference is filled with workshops highlighting specialty-specific topics within wound, ostomy, continence and professional practice tracks. Workshops will include Certification Review Course, Differential Diagnosis of Lower Extremity Ulcers Workshop, a full-day Pediatric Workshop, Practical Tools for Every Continence Nurse, Fistula Management, and Offloading the Diabetic Foot.

Some of the hot topics addressed at the conference include Diabetic Limb Salvage, Fistula Management Across Care Settings, Best Practice Guidelines for Indwelling Urinary Catheter, and Using Research and Guidelines to Drive Evidence Based Bedside Practice.

Networking with colleagues, top experts

While the educational component of the conference is unrivaled, the networking opportunities are equally so. Participants can connect with their colleagues and top experts in the field as they attend educational symposium dinners, receptions and networking meetings, exploring the future of WOC nursing care with individuals who are blazing new trails. The opening and closing sessions will be devoted to the WOCN past, present and future. Also, a special reception will be held at Universal Theme Park for attendees to honor all of the people who have made the Society what it is today.

Long-standing members and newcomers alike will benefit from attendance at the conference, held at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort and Convention Center -- the perfect setting for learning, networking, fun and sun. As an incentive to make plans early, the Society is offering an early bird conference registration discount of $60 through May 9.
