Our Mission

WOC Practitioners Association

Sacramento Valley

SacWOC is an informal, unaffiliated, non-profit gathering of wound, ostomy, continence, and foot care practitioners, both active and inactive, who meet bi-monthly, to:

  • Provide peer support in their professional and personal lives
  • Provide education and information to each other
  • Mentor new wound, ostomy, continence, and foot care practitioners
  • Educate the community in wound, ostomy continence and foot care issues
  • Strengthen the partnership between practitioners and the industry that supports their practice
  • Inform Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurse Association (WOCN) members and others about local Pacific Coast Region (PCR) activities and opportunities for involvement
  • Provide WOCN scholarship opportunities to the following students: Wound, Ostomy, Continence Foot Care, Wound Treatment Associates, and Ostomy Care Associates.


This is accomplished by:

  • Sharing experiences and expertise with each other
  • Partnering with industry representatives, peers and the medical community to provide in-service at meetings
  • Conducting educational programs in varying formats and to varying target audiences in the community
  • Receiving updates from the PCR liaison at the meetings
