Legislators are greatly influenced by what they know and what they hear - especially from the people they represent. By communicating with a state legislator or a member of Congress, you can have a profound impact on the government policies that most affect your practice and the field of wound and ostomy nursing. Your elected officials need to hear from you. They hear from constituents and interest groups about many issues from education to transportation to foreign policy. They need to hear from the nursing community as well. Don't assume they know all the facts about the important patient care role wound and ostomy nursing plays in your community. It is incumbent upon you to provide them with the information they will need to fully appreciate the vital role that your practice plays. Below you will find an example of a letter to a U.S. Representative or Senator.
