The monitoring and prevention of skin breakdown is a priority in nursing care. Research has shown that a nurse’s lack of knowledge in skin care can have a negative impact on patient care. The WOC Tip of the Day began as a way to communicate brief and concise education on skin, wound and ostomy care in the same way to a larger amount of nurses and nursing assistants.
