Reducing Pressure Injuries in the Surgical & Critical Care Population

Jun 6, 2020 9:00am ‐ Jun 6, 2020 10:15am

Identification: S04

Supported by Smith+Nephew

Critically ill patients in intensive care units are highly vulnerable to pressure injuries because of limited mobility, multiple medical devices, and the severity of their disease including patents with ARDS. This session will discuss the evolving appreciation for early mobilization and prone positioning in context of Covid-19, and a step-by-step clinical intervention strategy to reduce the incidence of pressure injury specific to the ECMO and critical care population.

Interventions Post Catheter Removal (iPCaRe): Results of the WOCN Consensus Conference

Jun 6, 2020 10:30am ‐ Jun 6, 2020 11:30am

Identification: GS2

Supported by BD Bard

Hospitals risk reduced reimbursement based on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Value Based Purchasing Program if patients experience never events (preventable outcomes) including catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). Most hospitals have implemented the 2014 CAUTI prevention guidelines including removing catheters earlier than ever before and reducing the number of catheters inserted. In 2019 the WOCN identified that no guidance existed for bedside clinicians for the selection of interventions post catheter removal. A Task Force reviewed the literature and convened an expert consensus panel to address gaps in the literature. A web-based decision support tool was subsequently developed and will be introduced in this session.

Identification: S06

Supported by HillRom

This presentation will discuss current trends in pressure injury development in the acute care setting identified through the International Pressure Ulcer Prevalence (IPUPTM) survey. National prevalence rates, risk factors and prevention strategies will be discussed across acute care sub-specialties as well as factors that contribute to unavoidable pressure injury development. Input from WOCN attendees at this session, along with these results will become the focus of a future study on unavoidable pressure injuries in acute care.

Is Your NPWT Working for YOU Across Care Settings?

Jun 6, 2020 3:30pm ‐ Jun 6, 2020 4:00pm

Identification: IH04

Presented by Medela LLC

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) has proven to be a potent modality that is extremely beneficial for even our most chronic and complex wounds. However, in our practice we discovered that some patients were unable to adhere to their treatment plan using our current NPWT device. Patients reported pain with dressing changes, an inability to sleep due to pump noise and difficulty navigating the pump, which negatively impacted the overall patient experience and ability to effectively promote wound healing.

As such, we evaluated and subsequently adopted Medela’s Invia® NPWT system to meet the high standard of care expected by our practice. The Medela Invia NPWT system has innovated on the current standard of care and provided better than expected outcomes. Please join Dr. Tickner describe his personal experience regarding Medela NPWT case study series.

Pivoting Your Ostomy Clinical Practice Due to COVID19

Jun 6, 2020 4:15pm ‐ Jun 6, 2020 4:45pm

Identification: IH05

Presented by Hollister Incorporated

COVID19 has disrupted the lives of our patients and has required clinicians and health care professionals to adjust their practices accordingly. Many patients are wary of visiting ostomy clinics, doctors’ offices or other medical facilities in fear of exposure to COVID19. The use of telehealth and digital care solutions is critical for managing our ostomy patients during this pandemic. This presentation will look at how you can pivot your ostomy practice to ensure you continue to provide accurate information, calm your patients, provide safe avenues to support patients’ ostomy care and ensure positive outcomes. Jan will share some hints and tips for conducting a virtual ostomy clinic and how she has pivoted her practice at the University of Chicago Medicine.

Challenges for the Ostomate: The Science Behind Maintaining Nutrition for Fecal and Urinary Diversions

Jun 6, 2020 5:15pm ‐ Jun 6, 2020 6:15pm

Identification: 301

Nutrition management of a patient with a new or existing ostomy or continent diversion presents a special challenge to the clinician. It is critical to understand what constitutes normal function in each type of ostomy, continent ​urine and bowel ( J-pouch, K-pouch) diversions and how best to intervene when complications such as malnutrition, dehydration, and electrolyte depletion arise. Appropriate and well-planned nutrition support regimens can help optimize the patient’s nutritional status and improve nutrient and medication absorption.
