Mölnlycke Health Care Congratulates WOCN®
Presents Innovative Solutions that Support Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses at Annual Conference
Norcross, GA. June 3, 2018 – Mӧlnlycke Health Care, a world-leading medical solutions company, will exhibit and provide educational content at the WOCN® Society’s 50th Annual Conference taking place June 3-6, 2018 in Philadelphia. Founded in 1968, WOCN is a professional, international nursing society of more than 5,000 healthcare professionals who are experts in wound, ostomy and continence care.
“Mӧlnlycke congratulates the WOCN Society on achieving this notable milestone,” said Rob Claypoole, U.S. President, Mӧlnlycke. “We share the WOCN Society’s commitment to promoting safe and effective care and support this mission with our innovation, evidence and education. These three focus areas will be on display during the upcoming conference through an exciting variety of interactive sessions for attendees.”
One of the Conference’s educational highlights will be a breakfast on June 5 with some of the world’s leading experts on pressure injury prevention: Joyce Black, PhD, RN, WCN, FAAN; Evan Call, MS CSM; Amit Gefen, PhD; William Padula, PhD; and Nick Santamaria, PhD. The interactive format will give attendees an opportunity to join a lively discussion with these thought leaders about emerging evidence in pressure injury prevention.
Mӧlnlycke is also offering two educational sessions in the Innovation Theater: a critical care nurse educator from Baton Rouge General Hospital will present her innovative bundled approach to pressure injury prevention in the ICU, and a WOC nurse from Cookeville Regional Medical Center will share her experience with new Mepilex Border Flex for skin tear management. At its Booth (#732), Mӧlnlycke will share its proven pressure injury prevention solutions and wound care products, including competitive demonstrations of its new gelling fiber dressings, Exufiber® and Exufiber® Ag+.
“Mӧlnlycke’s dedication to pressure injury prevention is an example of our shared commitment with the WOCN Society,” said Claypoole. “Our Mepilex® Border dressings have more than 80 pieces of evidence supporting their efficacy in pressure injury prevention; we offer a unique product for patient positioning, and we actively partner with global subject-matter experts to learn from their insights and share best practices.”
During the WOCN Conference, Mölnlycke will feature Exufiber, a patented gelling fiber dressing that was created based on insights from over 500 clinicians. Exufiber incorporates Hydrolock® Technology which gives Exufiber and Exufiber Ag+ superior fluid retention and absorption under compression as well as easy, one-piece removal during dressing changes.
Mölnlycke will also feature in-booth presentations by Tissue Analytics. This ground-breaking partnership brings together Mölnlycke's wound care expertise and Tissues Analytics' advanced digital capabilities to develop and commercialize innovative digital solutions for wound care practitioners.
