    The pinksocks tribe is united in changing the world from the ground up, with heartspeak, hugs, and gifting. It's all about working together to activate solutions to help move us forward and out of the mess that healthcare has found itself in. Politics, bureaucracies, and legacy systems have unfortunately done the polar opposite of what each of us as humans want and crave……which is to be connected. Let's explore the magic that happens when we give ourselves the space and self permission to say "yes!" to new ideas, to seeing each other, and to being seen. Let's lean into the power of connection!

    Learner Outcome:

    • We're going to learn how to really listen and connect with one another's heartspeak.

    Peristomal Skin: Stepping up the Beat to Quality Care

    Credits: None available.

    Peristomal skin complications are prevalent in persons living with an ostomy; more than 80% of individuals with an ostomy will experience a stomal or peristomal complication (PSC) within two years of ostomy surgery. Peristomal skin problems are especially prevalent and a growing body of evidence indicates they are associated with clinically relevant impairments in physical function, multiple components of health related quality of life, and higher costs. Several mechanisms are strongly linked to PSC including medical adhesive related skin injuries (MARSI). Peristomal MARSI (P-MARSI) is observed after removal of an adhesive ostomy pouching system. Although peristomal itch is often associated with PSCs there is increasing awareness of the impact of the peristomal itch even in the presence of intact skin. This session will discuss the impact of peristomal adhesive injuries and itch, report results of a recent consensus document and explore how to bring the knowledge into our clinical arena.

    Learner Outcome:

    • At the end of this session the learner will be able to discuss the impact of P-MARSI and Peristomal itch on quality of life.

    Supported by Stryker

    In the book Crossing the Quality Chasm (2001), the Institute of Medicine identified six domains of health care quality with the goal of guiding clinicians to deliver safe and evidence-based patient-centered care. Using the STEEPE Framework, this session will give clinicians the tools required to understand and implement these patient-centered concepts. Ranking systems and quality and patient safety measures utilized at the national level will be described and discussed from the clinical perspective of the WOC nurse.

    Learner Outcome:

    • At the conclusion of this presentation participants will be able to identify the six aims for health care quality and safety identified in the STEEPE Framework and implement strategies that address the delivery of high-quality and safe patient care across the care continuum.

    Although providers receive much technical training related to their clinical field, little guidance is given on how to communicate with patients, particularly those with challenging behaviors. This session provides clinicians with communication strategies and de-escalation skills to navigate challenging encounters with patients. Particular attention is paid to empathy and its role in effective communication.

    Learner Outcome:

    • Participants will be able to describe the role of empathy in effective communication and de-escalation.
