One Simple Choice. It’s really as simple as that. At least that’s what Angela thought after waking up out of the deep fog of despair and hopelessness she was in. The doctor had diagnosed her with a rare neuromuscular disease and told her to go home and prepare for it to take her life. She tried diligently to figure out how to die gracefully, crying each morning upon rising and falling asleep in the same manner. But nothing in her being wanted to make this choice. And as simple as a light switch flicking on, she made up her mind. She would fight to live. That’s where the story of perseverance begins . . .
In this powerful keynote speech Angela will pull at your heartstrings and have you laughing in the next breath. She believes we all have the ability to live well, to make choices that support us in health and happiness, and achieve all that we desire in this life.Speaker(s):
This session presents Dr. Bill Hettler's Six Dimensions of Wellness Model. The aim of the presentation is to provide a conceptual basis for wellness and self-care. Interventions are discussed that focus on nonpharmacological approaches to self-care that can also be used in direct patient care to provide your patients alternatives to pharmaceutical medications and provide you with tools for self-management of emotional and physical ailments. This presentation conceptually distinguishes between health and wellness; which are overlapping but distinct and measurable characteristics of individuals and groups, with health being the absence of disease, and wellness being the conditions that support health and reduce risk of disease. Health can in a sense be viewed as a series of dichotomous variables that describe functionality of body and mind, while wellness is more accurately viewed on a continuum, and inclusive of physical and non-physical domains of self. The second component of this session will focus on the immune system, the lymphatic system and women’s health. This portion will be presented by Nancy Nathenson, RRT.
Chaucer said; “Time Heals all Wounds”. Wound healers know this is far from the truth. In our day to day work, it is not the Stage 2 pressure injuries or partial thickness skin tears, but rather the unusual, atypical and complex wounds that occupy the majority of our thoughts and energies. This session will present, in a case-based format, some rational strategies for sorting out the complex cases we face.

The incidence range of fecal incontinence in acute care settings has been reported as 17%-33%. Patients with fecal incontinence commonly report anxiety, shame and embarrassment over the condition. Their families and significant others become distressed over odor and the obvious discomfort of their loved one. Caring for acutely or critically ill patients with fecal incontinence consumes substantial caregiver time and cost related to linen, laundry, absorptive and containment products and skin care products. In addition to patient and family dissatisfaction, adverse outcomes associated with fecal incontinence include spread of pathogens, infection, increased length of stay, falls, and pressure injuries. WOC nurses are uniquely qualified to improve outcomes for this patient population by initiate interventions aimed at skin protection, containment and management of modifiable factors related to FI.Speaker(s):
