Waisman WIN Distance Learning

The Waisman WIN (Wellness Inclusion Nursing) program is excited to announce a new series of online training opportunities for individuals around the state of Wisconsin. This series provides expertise, training, and resources through videoconference workshops for individuals who support the overall health and well being of adults and children with IDDs in their communities.

Access to resources and clinical services focused on the specialized healthcare needs of individuals with disabilities may not be available in many rural and underserved communities in Wisconsin and beyond. To meet this need, the Waisman Center aims to expand access to its specialized resources and expertise through WIN videoconference workshops.

Who should participate?

Family members, caregivers, residential and vocational staff, and others who support adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs) in the community.

About Waisman WIN:

The Wellness Inclusion Nursing (WIN) Program nurses serve as consultants to residential and vocational team members, families and health care providers focusing on restoring, maintaining and promoting maximal health and independence for adults with developmental disabilities (DD) so they can achieve the best life possible.

Presented by Marcia Stickel, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Waisman Wellness Inclusion Nursing Program Director

My education includes a BA in Psychology as well as a BSN in Nursing.  I have enjoyed using both degrees in many of my nursing experiences.  I have worked as a home health nurse and as a hospital nurse on a rehab unit, working with those who had traumatic brain injuries.

Since 2003, I have worked in community nursing in Dane County, first as a nurse care manager for individuals with both physical and severe mental health disabilities at CLA and Care Wisconsin.

Since 2009 I have worked in the Wellness Inclusion Nursing program and currently I am the director of the program.  We work with individuals who have developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injuries and who live in the community and work primarily as advocates, consultants, and educators.
