Telehealth Wound Applications: Barriers, Solutions, & Future Use

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

Identification: 302

Telehealth applications are an emerging technology in a new era of telemedicine within health care systems. Although telehealth technologies, are utilized by various members of the health care team, Nurse Practitioners utilize them for a variety of patients’ issues across healthcare settings. The Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne Computer Science Department developed a wound scanning application, WoundView, for nurse practitioners to utilize in different healthcare settings. Such telehealth mobile applications are used in clinics, home health, rural, and remote settings where a physician may not be readily available. There are challenges with current practice of using telehealth technologies including a dire need for evidence-based research supporting attainable solutions for these barriers. Extensive, ongoing research will allow Nurse Practitioners to anticipate an immense mainstream implementation of telehealth applications in the near future.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease & Fatigue: A Common Complaint with Multiple Sources

Jun 6, 2020 6:30pm ‐ Jun 6, 2020 7:30pm

Identification: 305

The majority of patients with IBD report significant fatigue as a complaint. Although fatigue is seen in patients with active IBD, the complaint is also described in roughly 30-40% of patients with inactive disease. Considering the protean nature of the complaint as well as the prevalence in IBD patients, a coordinated multi-faceted assessment of fatigue is required, with input of multi-specialties. The goal of the session is to allow attendees an algorithm and means to assess complaints related to IBD associated fatigue.

Wound Hygiene: Defying Hard to Heal Wounds with an Anti-Biofilm Intervention Strategy

Jun 7, 2020 9:00am ‐ Jun 7, 2020 10:15am

Identification: S09

Supported by ConvaTec, Inc

Although biofilm is widely documented and understood to be the main cause of delayed healing in hard to heal wounds, health care providers in many settings still wait for overt signs of infection, delayed healing or other complications before intervening with biofilm-based wound care protocols. An international consensus of wound care specialists has devised the concept of Wound Hygiene as a structured 4-step method for overcoming the barriers to healing associated with biofilm. Our speakers will discuss the foundation of biofilm-based wound care and the 4 elements of Wound Hygiene as used within a protocol of care for patients with hard to heal wounds.

Critical Connections: Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Adult Chronic Illness and WOC Nursing

Jun 7, 2020 10:30am ‐ Jun 7, 2020 11:45am

Identification: GS4

Chronic wounds, inflammatory bowel diseases, and pelvic floor disorders are affected by many factors, but have you considered exposure to childhood adversity as a risk for these conditions? Science emerging from the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Study demonstrates a dose- response relationship with chronic illness and health risk behaviors in adulthood that overlap significantly with risk factors for wound, ostomy, continence care issues. This session will review the science of ACEs, specifically scrutinizing neuroscience, epigenetics, and resilience factors from the perspective of the WOC nurse. This session will identify the significant gap in scientific literature in this milieu and calls for research to better understand critical connections among ACEs, adult chronic illness, and skin, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary manifestations.
