The deadline to submit your most challenging patient case for the “SOS: Solutions on the Spot” NSWOCC National Conference session is March 1, 2023.

The SOS: Solutions on the spot at the National Conference will consist of:

  • Cases highlighting patients with challenging ostomies, wounds, and continence issues.

  • Presentation of cases to conference attendees.

  • Group discussion on ways to manage your patient challenge.

  • Feedback and suggestions from esteemed colleagues.


Presenters will be required to speak to a 10-minute power point which includes background information & interventions that have been successful and those that have not worked. Maximum 3 – 5 slides. High resolution photographs are encouraged with obtained patient consent.

  • 10 minutes for discussion from session attendees.
