The Inpatient Wound Care Team of Mission Hospital, Asheville, North Carolina, received a second place award for their wound telehealth poster at the annual conference of the Southeast Region of the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses (WOCN®) Society. Held August 25-27, 2016, in Greensboro, North Carolina, the conference drew attendees from the southeast region of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

The poster, Using Telehealth Technology to Extend the Reach of the WOC Nurse into Underserved Practice Settings, highlighted a telehealth pilot on seven nursing units. The successful project will be expanded across Mission Health rural acute, home health and long-term care settings in western North Carolina.
