NAWCO℠ and WCEI® Attend the UOAA National Conference

A Memorable Experience at the UOAA National Conference! uoaa_collage
What an awesome time we had!

This was a very different type of National Meeting when compared to others we’ve attended in the past. We met hundreds of Ostomates in all ages, from across the US and internationally. This was the first time we attended the United Ostomy Association of America (UOAA) National Conference and we were greeted with a warm welcome from attendees, clinicians and exhibitors.

Many people stopped by the booth to welcome the National Alliance of Wound Care and Ostomy℠ on their latest certification, the Ostomy Management Specialist (OMS℠) into their community with open arms. In fact, over and over attendees were telling us how “there’s nobody trained that can help me”… “there isn’t enough stoma nurses”… “we are so glad you are doing this”.  They were thrilled to learn that the OMS certification would not only include Nurses but also other disciplines such as Physical Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistant, Occupational Therapist, Physicians and Physician Assistant.

Jennifer Oakley (WCEI Instructor) and I spent our time at the booth talking to each attendee and listening to their stories. This really gave us an intimate up-front personal look into their lives. I have to say not many of the stories we heard were positive. In fact many were straight up nightmares of experiences they each had to endure.  Many times Jennifer and I found ourselves holding back the emotion as their stories were so moving.

This just reinforced to me that we need to get out there and spread the knowledge and time is of the essence!    My wheels were spinning on ideas of what we can do to make an impact nationwide.

It was an honor to attend this year’s UOAA national meeting. We want to thank each and every one of you that welcomed us and shared your story. We at WCEI will continue to pay it forward by educating multidisciplinary clinicians in Ostomy Management!
