September 18-22, 2023

Join NSWOCC in celebrating our inaugural SWAN™ Week 2023 next week on September 18-22, 2023! The inaugural theme for 2023 is SWAN™ Week 2023: “Crucial Members of the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Team”.

SWANs elevate the standard of care by...

  • enhancing the lives of individuals facing wound, ostomy, and continence challenges.

  • providing day-to-day specialty care at the bedside.

  • being crucial and integral members of the interprofessional wound, ostomy, and continence team.

  • championing the principles of efficient, effective, and culturally sensitive healthcare across diverse settings, including acute care, community, rehabilitation, and long term care.

  • tirelessly advocating for patients.

  • consuming research, applying their findings to enhance practice and patient care.

To celebrate, we encourage you to download, print, and share the SWAN Week Flyer, and share messages on social media using the assets below and the hashtag #SWANsElevateCare.
