All accepted abstracts will be presented in some form during the conference, available on the WOCN website and as a digital 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.
We will be presenting a select number of posters in electronic format (ePoster) this year. If your poster is chosen for an ePoster, more instructions will follow. Click here for more information on ePosters.
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.
